Mankato Woman Released from Hospital After 2nd Heart Transplant Surgery

(ABC 6 News) -- A fantastic update about a woman who'd been through a very long, difficult medical journey. Alyssa Sandeen has now left Mayo Clinic.

Here's a photo her father posted on Facebook. It has the caption, some of Alyssa's wonderful nurses being silly as Alyssa was leaving the hospital, after being confined there 8 long months.

Alyssa has a long history of heart problems. This will be her second transplant heart, that she received just at the end of June.

Now she's not quite headed home. Her father writes she'll need to stay in Rochester until the end of September in case of any complications.

Currently she's staying at the gift of life transplant house.
