DOTHAN, Al. (WTVY) - A successful heart transplant happened in Birmingham Sunday.

Rylann Day, the Geneva County girl we first told you about in October with a rare heart condition is now out of surgery.

Since Sunday afternoon, she has been off a breathing machine.

Rylann's mother, Jessica Day said, "In her words she is overwhelmed and grateful. She is doing good, she is drinking and eating. Still has a long way to go but we are off to good start. We are feeling very humble and grateful to the family that gave our daughter this wonderful gift of life. We will be forever grateful! Thanks so much for the love and support."
