      Jake Lee Recovering After Another Surgery

      Videojournalist: Alana Austin

      Durham, NC -- The Tunstall Middle School student who got a new heart is still recovering at Duke after another surgery this past weekend.

      Doctors had to go in again after scabs had loosened in Jake Lee's chest cavity, which led to bleeding. It was a little setback, but doctors say everything is under control.

      Family members say he's walking now and in good spirits. They hope he'll be home for Christmas.

      Tunstall Middle School is raising funds for Jake at a wrestling match on December 15th. Seating begins at 7 p.m. and belltime is at 8 p.m.

      Tickets are available at several area locations, and at the door. B & D Sports on Piney Forest Road or Frank's Italian Restaurant on Memorial Drive are currently selling tickets.
