In less than two weeks, Jack Conover went from being a 7-year-old in need of a heart transplant to a vibrant boy walking out of the hospital with a new heart. The Ridgefield boy, born with a congenital heart defect, underwent a heart transplant June 14 at Seattle Children's. On June 27, Jack walked out of the hospital with a healthy heart beating in his chest and a body recovering from the massive surgery faster than doctors expected. "It's pretty crazy," said Jack's mom, Kelly Conover. "There are a lot of people doing double takes."
