After waiting 8 months to receive a new heart, 15-year-old Trevor Sullivan underwent heart transplant surgery last November. Although the surgery came with risks, Trevor's family knew he wouldn't live long without the surgery.

Thankfully, Trevor survived the complicated surgery and his father captured his son's emotional and joyous post operation words on camera.

As Trevor woke up, he cried, "I'm so happy. I've been waiting so long. I can breathe again... and talk."

Trevor's father Philip then asked him if he felt good, and Trevor replied, "I feel amazing. I've never felt so good."

After recovering, Trevor told ABC News, "I really like the video, actually. I think it's really cool and I wish everyone in the world could see it because it really makes a difference. It promotes organ donation and people can see the outcome of it and how happy they [patients] really are."

Trevor's mom Kimberly also weighed in on his recovery and video. "It blew me away," she told ABC News. "Honestly, for me, I didn't know what to expect. I kind of thought he'd wake up disoriented and in pain, but instead he woke up happy, ready to go and pleased with what he was going through. He made all the worrying that a mom would do go away."
