NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Heart transplant recipient Andrew Hagewood was released from the hospital on Thursday following a two week stay at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

Sixteen-month-old Andrew was readmitted to the hospital last month and placed on a ventilator due to breathing issues.

While in the hospital, an X-Ray revealed he also suffered from a broken leg.

Andrew's anti-rejection medication makes his bones soft, causing them to break easily.

Andrew, who was born February 6, 2012, underwent a heart transplant when he was just six weeks due to an enlarged heart.
