He went to the hospital for what they thought was simply a broken nose but only to find out a week later that it was something far more serious. 

A CT scan revealed there was a fracture inside of his nose and he had a laceration on an artery. Lockhart has had to undergo seven surgeries and was sedated in order to help him heal faster and with no pain.

The 15-year-old was sedated until June 29 when doctors hoped he could start to heal naturally, without the help of medical-induced clotting.

He was doing well with very little bleeding until Monday when he coughed while having breakfast with his parents. The pressure within his nose may have caused the clotting to come loose and lead to a nose bleed. 

Lockhart underwent his 7th surgery in 14 days in order to cauterize the bleeding in his nose and doctors hope to let him start healing on his own.
