Girl Who Received Heart Transplant After Drake Visit Can Hear Heart Beat

Sofia Sanchez of Downers Grove who received a heart transplant is doing well and can now hear her new heart beat! According to ABC news Sofia is now breathing on her own as well:

"In an update on the family's gofundme page, the 11-year-old Downers Grove girl's mom said, 'Doctors are amazed at how quickly she is starting to recover.' The best part for Sofia, she can hear her heart beating now that she's not using an artificial heart pump. The family is hopeful she will be home by November. A month ago, Sofia underwent open heart surgery in order to connect a VAD (ventricular assist device), which is a mechanical pump that helps support the heart and blood flow in people with heart failure. After Sofia's 'In My Feelings' video went viral, Drake visited her when he was in Chicago as part of his tour two weekends ago. He said they chatted about Justin Bieber and basketball."
