The family of a 3-year old who underwent surgery for five new organs says the little boy is recovering well.

It's been a month since Adonis Ortiz returned to his Tampa, FL home from the hospital.

The little boy was born with a severe birth defect that left intestines formed outside his body. He went to the hospital with his liver, pancreas, stomach and intestines all failing.

Now, four months after the never before tried five organ transplant, his mom says Adonis is growing like a healthy boy and has never felt better.
