Hi!!! I'm a friend of Joanne's and she had asked me to set up this site to keep everyone updated on Nino's progress. As you all know, Nino has been in Montefiore Medical Center since he had surgery on his shoulder. He suffered some complications from that surgery. As of now, he is making some nice progress and hopefully will be moved to Helen Hayes Hospital soon. We will keep you updated here on any progress he makes and when he is officially moved. It's hard for Joanne to respond to everyone's messages and while they are very much appreciated, she needs to focus directly on his recovery. Please keep Nino in your thoughts and prayers!!!
