Air Force Major Gets Second Chance With New Heart

​AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A retired Air Force officer has a second chance at life thanks to a new heart.
Major David Powell, 59, is recovering from a heart transplant at the University of Colorado Hospital.
“Lucky, blessed, being watched over,” said Powell.
That’s how he feels 13 days after his transplant. Now, he has big plans for his new ticker.
“I want to get back in shape. I want to get back into cycling shape,” Powell told CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh.
