Amanda Kloots says her husband Nick Cordero is defying odds in the coronavirus battle.
Amanda Kloots provided a positive update on Instagram on the health condition of her husband, Nick Cordero, as he continues to battle COVID-19 in hospital.
Taking to the Instagram story, Kloots wrote: “Nick update: He is doing good. He is defying odds. He is fighting and showing small improvements each day.” The mother to 11-year-old son, Elvis, added, “Small improvements are small wins that equal a victory.”
Towards the end of March, Cordero, 41, a Tony-nominated actor who appeared at Broadway shows, most notably Waitress and Rock of Ages, was hospitalized for pneumonia, originally posted by Kloots on Instagram.
Shortly afterward, Cordero was placed into a medically induced coma followed by the COVID-19 diagnosis. In April, Kloots announced a blood clot would require Cordero’s right leg to be amputated.
On Instagram, Kloots invited fans to use the hashtag #WakeUpNick in honor of her husband’s admirable battle against the deadly disease.
Cordero’s medical diagnosis is often fluctuating — Kloots said on May 12, Cordero had awakened and was out of the coma. And on Wednesday, she revealed, “things are going downhill.” This was followed by “We’re on a step forward again,” labeling the phase a “roller coaster.”

In the latest Instagram update, Kloots said: “He says he recognizes me. So if we ask him a yes or no question, this is how we’re communicating — yes, he looks up; no, he looks down. The other day, I asked the nurse, I was like, ‘Can he see me over FaceTime?’ and she said, “Ask him.’ And so I said, ‘Nick, can you see me?’ And he looked right up. So I think he can. And when I put Elvis on the FaceTime, his eyes get really big, and he seems very, very alert.”
