WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — A special moment for one Wethersfield man just released from the hospital after a months-long battle with COVID-19.

Michael DiDonato, 62, went into the hospital back in November at Saint Francis Hospital before he was transferred to Gaylord Healthcare in Wallingford back in January.

He was on a ventilator and was not expected to live. He couldn’t walk, talk, stand, or even swallow. Now he’s doing all that himself.
