The condition of heart transplant patient Michael Drummond was upgraded from critical to fair, and Tucson hospital officials said he was showing no sign of rejecting his new heart. Drummond's second heart was implanted Saturday as doctors removed the artificial heart that had kept him alive for 10 days. If he continues to improve, Drummond, 25, could be released from the hospital within three weeks, hospital spokeswoman Nina Trasoff said.
