Tillman's daughter's heart transplant

Today, Charles Tillman finally discussed his daughter's medical ailment:

After being taken by helicopter to Children's Memorial Hospital in May from their Chicago home, Tiana spent three months in the hospital suffering from cardiomyopathy--an enlargement of the heart that prevents proper beating. After receiving a heart transplant in late July, Tiana, now 6 months old, was released to her home Monday, Tillman cheerfully announced.

"My daughter is alive and well and doing great," Tillman said. "Smiling and kicking and cooing, all that stuff 6 month olds are supposed to do."

Thankfully, it sounds like everything is ok. Here's hoping for no complications from the transplant.
