Jordon Hensley Back In Hospital

Nashville (WVLT) - The father of a young heart transplant recipient says his daughter is being monitored in the hospital after coming down with a stomach virus or the flu.

12-year-old Jordon Hensley received the gift of life after 12-year-old Ashley Paine from Oak Ridge was killed in an accident with a school bus.

We spoke with Jordon's dad Wednesday night, and he tells us Jordon is back at Vanderbilt University Medical Center suffering from the illness.

She's undergoing some tests and monitoring, but Jordon's father says she's expected to be fine.
