Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - "Bye bye old lungs!" Those were the first words Jordan Peterson spoke as he came out of sedation after having his lungs replaced.

The 10-year-old Fargo boy underwent a double lung transplant early Tuesday morning at Texas children's in Houston.

His family relocated there in October to get treatment for Jordan's cystic fibrosis.

On his Caringbridge site, his family wrote that Jordan is still very sleepy from all the medication but his ventilation is out and he even sat in a chair for a while. And they write "Vital signs are super!!!!".
