MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Jordy Carper, an 11-year-old Hedgesville boy hospitalized since April 2 with a collapsed lung and infection, was upgraded to stable condition Sunday night and transferred to a regular room. Jordy received a double-lung transplant in June. He had been in critical condition in the intensive care unit at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., until Sunday night. "They've pretty much found what the problem was. It was a virus that got into his bloodstream and made him very ill," said Larry Hoerner, a guidance counselor at Tuscarora Elementary School who had home-schooled Carper since February.
