The Rock of Ages star remains in the intensive care unit in a Los Angeles hospital, where he was first admitted in March after exhibiting various COVID-19 symptoms, which quickly escalated into a health crisis, costing him his leg.

Amanda Kloots and Nick Cordero attend the Beyond Yoga x Amanda Kloots Collaboration Launch Event in New York City on August 27, 2019.

Kloots: I call it the vicious circle or the ICU dance because you just feel like you're in this momentum of going around, around, around like a hamster wheel.


Amanda Kloots, wife of Canadian actor Nick Cordero revealed that her husband is in dire need of double lung transplant to live how he would want. "A 99 per cent prospect that he would be needing that in order to reside the sort of existence that I know my spouse would want to reside".

"They said four times he will not survive. Sometimes even he will not endure through the nighttime, however, he's", she told King. "He's fighting. He sees him every day". Dr. Nick sees him.

Broadway star Nick Cordero's fight with coronavirus has been continuing for 90 days yet the battle is as yet not finished. He's stable. Nick's body is extremely weak.


While recently doing an Instagram Q&A, Kloots said that Cordero - who's dealing with a litany of issues on a daily basis, including fluctuating blood pressure, and is still on a ventilator after coming out of a coma - could be in the hospital for "months" more, presumably longer with a transplant, followed by at least one year in a rehab facility.

On Thursday Amanda said things felt "gloomy" when she went to visit her husband that day but she put music on, started singing and reading him some of the mail they receive from around the world. He can still open his eyes, and when he is alert and awake, he'll answer commands by looking up or down, yes or no questions. In the recorded message, Kloots defended her work as a female entrepreneur while also highlighting that Cordero, a Broadway star, has been in the ICU for 91 days and counting. "I've been told to say goodbye", she wrote in the caption of a photo featuring Cordero with the couple's baby son, Elvis. When I'm inquiring him, he will even try to smile or shift his jaw. "The nurses have all explained that he answers my questions the finest". ⠀ In efforts to give back Anna and I created a business, @hooray.for, and are giving 50% of the proceeds from the Health Hero's and Life t-shirt designs to help COVID response.

Kloots' interview came after a recent Instagram post asking her followers to continue praying for Nick's speedy recovery. "Both people sitting at our new home, Elvis is in bed and now we are listening to'Our House" within our, you knowhome in Laurel Canyon".
