Broadway star Nick Cordero is in the fight of his life.

Not only has Cordero been battling the dreaded coronavirus for over a month now, but he recently had to get his right leg amputated as part of that battle. According to People magazine, the amputation came as a result of other coronavirus complications, including kidney problems in which he is now on dialysis for and an infection in his lung which resulted in another emergency surgery.

“Okay I just heard from the doctor and he’s doing good guys,” Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots said in an Instagram video over the weekend. “For Nick, he is doing the best that he possibly can right now, which is a huge hallelujah. Surgery went well, he’s recovering well from surgery, the wound looks okay, he didn’t lose a lot of blood.”

Kloots and Cordero are the parents of a 10-month old son by the name of Elvis.

“His blood pressure is okay, his heart is okay, even his internal bleeding has kind of calmed down, so everything seems to be calmed down, which is so great because this has been such a roller coaster,” she continued, later adding, “We’re still rooting for him to wake up.”

And so is the rest of the world.
