WALLINGFORD — George Aiello went to Danbury Hospital in March for what he thought was a heart problem.

The 77-year-old hasn’t been back to his Bethel home since, spending more than a month attached to a ventilator as he battled COVID-19 and about another seven months recovering at Gaylord Specialty Healthcare.

But on Friday morning, he was heading home.

“I might have come in by an ambulance, but I’m walking out,” he said.
