Artificial heart recipient Michael Drummond's condition improved as his temperature returned to normal after doctors in Tucson increased the blood flow through his Jarvik-7 implant. "I think he looks much, much better than he did yesterday," Dr. Jack G. Copeland said of the 25-year-old Drummond. Copeland hopes to remove the artificial heart he implanted in Drummond and replace it with a human heart within three weeks.
