OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City newborn is recovering after heart surgery Tuesday at a hospital in Little Rock, AR.

According to family, Nicholas Jordan is out of surgery but there were complications.

Little Nicholas was born eight weeks early and was diagnosed with Down's syndrome and several heart problems. He had to be flown to a hospital in Little Rock for open heart surgery. And now he's dealing with a collapsed lung.

But this little guy is a fighter, and Angela Lancaster, his grandmother, is doing everything she can to raise money for medical related expenses.

Several of her coworkers at the Oklahoma City police department have helped out, hosting a car wash fundraiser, even a bake sale.

"Oh my gosh it is so humbling," says Lancaster. "I am so thankful for working here they have just been awesome I can't say enough about the police department."
