Discharge from Chicago hospital was delayed due to riots
Owen Buell of Joliet spent his second birthday with his family after all.
In a Facebook message late Monday night, his great-grandmother Jackie Moore of Florida said Owen’s oncologist wound up giving Owen a “day pass."'
Owen was supposed to be discharged from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago on Monday but that was delayed due to the riots, Moore said.
“He got his little party right before the storm blew through,” Moore said. “Better late than never.”
