Broadway star Nick Cordero is fighting for his life as he battles the coronavirus that has caused a pandemic across the globe. The little steps he’s making along the way are keeping his wife, Amanda Kloots and others going.
Kloots has been sharing updates with followers on her Instagram story about Nick’s condition and on Monday (May 4) she shared Nick’s most recent progress.
“Guys a quick Nick update before we go live. He is doing good . He’s in recovery today and things are going well. Numbers on machines are coming down, which is great. And we just still need him to wake up,” she said in her Instagram story. “So the doctors are just hoping and praying that things start—we need him to follow commands—look left, look right. His eyes are opening up. Unfortunately, they are not connected to anything but small little steps.”
Kloots also posted a photo of herself wrapped in her husband’s clothes. “I now just wear all of Nicks clothes,” she wrote alongside the pic.
Nick has been battling the virus for over a month after he was hospitalized in ICU in early April.
“My sweet husband needs your prayers please,” Kloots shared. “Nick has been sick for awhile with what we were told last week was pneumonia. Unfortunately we think he was misdiagnosed and we are waiting to hear if this is in fact COVID. He is scared, in the ICU and now unconscious so his body can get enough oxygen. We are all trying to stay positive and strong knowing that he is in the best care.”

As Cordero remained unconscious and the virus continued through his body, the doctors had decided to amputate his right leg due to coronavirus complications. In the process, Cordero also encountered kidney problems in which he was placed on dialysis for and as well as an infection in his lung which resulted in another emergency surgery.
Kloots is also sharing videos of fans and celebrities alike, wishing Nick well as they play his song “Live Your Life,” while sharing the hashtag #wakeupnick.
