MIAMI (AP) - A 14-year-old South Carolina girl is finally going
home, after having two heart transplants in the past four months,
and surviving on an artificial heart for the 118 days in between.

Surgeons at Holtz Children's Hospital in Miami believe this is
the first time that two pumping devices have been used to
temporarily replace the heart of a pediatric patient.
