14 LIved Without a Heart for 118 Days

She is on her way home now.
A rare transplant failure forced one teen to live with a blood-pumping machine for 118 days until a new heart could be found. The girl says she felt like a "fake person" for 118 days when she had no heart beating in her chest. "But I know that I really was here," the 14-year-old said, "and I did live without a heart."

After her heart transplant didn't work well, they replaced the heart with a pair of artificial pumping devices that kept blood flowing through her body until she could have a second transplant.
