ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Two weeks after her life-saving heart transplant 23-year-old Alyssa Sandeen has finally left the hospital.

Sandeen was transported to the Gift of Life Transplant House Thursday night after being hospitalized since November at Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester.

She had her first heart transplant when she was just 8 years old.

As a young girl, Sandeen was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a weakening of the heart muscle.

The anti-rejection medication she was taking for her first heart transplant weakened her kidneys.

Sandeen's mother donated a kidney to her daughter in 2010.
