EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- An Evansville police officer's baby will get to spend Christmas at home after having a heart transplant. 

According to the Evansville Courier & Press, Luke Chapman, the son of officer Shawn Chapman, was born in April with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, a condition where half the heart is not fully developed. 

He recently received a heart transplant, and left the hospital Wednesday. 

Luke's story has been documented on a Facebook page. 

A post on Thursday said his first biopsy came back showing no rejection. 

It's been a very busy 72 hours! We are adjusting to our new schedule and routine! Luke has lots of meds and keeps us...
