ROCHESTER (TEC News) - A well-known 24-year-old is in recovery after seeking a second heart for a transplant. Alyssa Sandeen received the news yesterday of a heart becoming available. Many have followed her story since 1998 when she was diagnosed with a rare infection. The Ridler family posted an update from Alyssa's dad on Facebook a couple hours ago:
"We just met with Alyssa's head surgeon; she will be brought to her new ICU room on the 5th floor. He was not sure if they were gonna close her chest yet or not. She will most likely be sedated for the next day or two."
