Baby Andrew Home In Time For Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A brave little boy made a very special trip home from the hospital on Wednesday, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Baby Andrew Hagewood was released after spending a month in the hospital. Andrew was born in February, in desperate need of a new heart.  He underwent transplant surgery at just two months old, but constant complications kept him hospitalized for months. 

He went home for the first time in October, but was re-admitted just a week later after an X-ray showed fluid overload.

Andrew's parents hope his story will help raise awareness about the lives that are saved every day through organ donation.
