(WTNH) — There were cheers and tears as Vinny Malvarosa greeted his loved ones at Gaylord Specialty Healthcare after an ordeal that began back on March 11. “I drove myself to the ER,” he explained. “Little did I know what was in store.” “I certainly didn’t think, at that time, that he would be gone for three and a half months,” added wife, Sally. After being diagnosed with coronavirus, the 50-year-old was placed in a coma at Northern Westchester Hospital before being moved here to Gaylord Specialty Healthcare at the end of April. “It’s really been overwhelming,” he said. “I’m not gonna lie. I didn’t always have faith.” Malvarosa, a New York resident, is the lead singer in a Connecticut band called Stuntfish. His 15-year-old daughter, Michaela, said he is energetic and charming. “He’s so funny, and he’s so caring. He’s just the best.”
