Logan Siciliano was discharged today from Boston Children's Hospital and will arrive home sometime on Friday, just 15 days after undergoing open heart surgery!! It is reported that Logan, after a hearty breakfast was asked by Dr. Lacro if he was excited about going home. Logan told his doctor that he needs to stay in the hospital because he is "still very sick". Logan's Dad, Mark reports that they are "pretty sure he just likes having a menu to choose from and a never ending supply of food."
Santa with the help of his elf from the Albany County Correctional Facility plan to deliver special gifts to Logan and his brother, Connor just in time for Christmas! ACCFCB is grateful to these very kind and generous anonymous granters of holiday wishes for this loving family!
