Amanda Kloots provided fans with another update on the condition of her husband Nick Cordero in an Instagram Story on Wednesday. The “Blue Bloods” actor and Broadway star has been in the hospital fighting for his life after contracting the coronavirus.
“Update on Nick: His blood pressure is better!” Kloots wrote. “Dialysis is working. They’ve been able to drain fluids to help inflammation. We need him to wake up. They need to see him follow commands. Also his right foot is not showing a pulse but the wound looks better. Breathing is a bit fast this morning.”
She later added that his heart and lungs are getting strong which could mean they can soon remove the ECMO machine he’s been on.
“Which would mean his heart and lungs would be running on their own. Big win.” She wrote, “We still need him to wake up … but guys, it’s a small win in the right direction for our Nick.”
Kloots previously shared a scary update over the weekend.
“He lost consciousness, he lost his pulse and they had to resuscitate him,” Kloots said in a video shared to her Instagram Story. “They had a very hard time getting him back. I got a phone call at 2:30 in the morning, they needed my consent to put him on dialysis to assist with his kidneys. This afternoon, we got a phone call that things were really moving in the right direction and that his life was being saved, which was huge. And we all kind of celebrated for a minute until… they had to go into immediate surgery to save the blood flow to his leg.”
In a post over the weekend, she said he is fighting for his life. “My whole world has stopped. Please pray for my husband. Prayer warriors, prayer circles, whatever you’ve got. Energy, meditation, positive thinking. He is fighting for his life right now. Elvis and I need you Nick Cordero. It’s time to fight daddy,” she wrote alongside a family photo.
Cordeo sang his wife’s praises in his last Instagram post before being hospitalized. “These days I’m counting my blessings. This one is top of the list. To say I’m thankful for her is the greatest understatement. She only spreads love in the world and does her best to make it a better place. If you know her you know what I mean. It’s [Amanda Kloots] birthday today, so take a second and show her some love. If anyone deserves it it’s her today. Happy Birthday baby. I love you with all my heart,” he wrote.
