Broadway star Nick Cordero has had a slight increase in his health as he continues to fight coronavirus at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
His wife Amanda Kloots released a positive report on Friday evening after a few discouraging words earlier this week. She did not specify what caused the setback, but said via Instagram that her husband “is fighting.”
“He is doing well. He defies the odds. He fights and shows small improvements every day. This is exactly what we need.
“Small improvements are small victories that equal a VICTORY! “, She added. ” Thanks to God. “
The positive update comes after Amanda revealed on Thursday that Nick’s progress had taken a “step forward” after saying he had “come down” earlier this week.
“I’m happy to say it looks like we’re taking a step forward again,” said Kloots. “So one of the things I learned about this whole process is that the country of the ICU is one step forward, two steps back. And that’s what happened to us in the past 24 hours. “
Cordero, 41, who appeared on Broadway in Waitress and Bullets on broadway, was admitted to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in March for a respiratory illness later diagnosed as COVID-19. After being placed in a medically induced coma, Cordero suffered a leg amputation and suffered lung damage before waking up from a coma on May 12.
Kloots’s Instagram updates on her husband’s condition have captured national attention, with many of her more than 200,000 subscribers participating in daily briefings.
