WALLINGFORD, Conn. — Michael DiDonato, a 62-year old retired attorney from Wethersfield, was wheeled out of Gaylord Hospital on Friday, and, that brief roll meant great strides for the father and husband.

DiDonato was admitted to Saint Francis Hospital on November 16 after being diagnosed with COVID-19. 

His battle against the coronavirus was intense: DiDonato spent weeks in the ICU and eight weeks on a ventilator. After showing signs of improvement, DiDonato was transferred to Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford in January for more arduous months of rehab.
