Nick Cordero managed to remove a ventilator after installing a tracheostomy tube to help him breathe, his wife Amanda Kloots shared.
The Broadway actor remains in a coma after a battle with COVID-19, which caused him to have one of his legs amputated and a temporary pacemaker due to an irregular heartbeat.
Amanda updated fans on her progress on Instagram, and taking her stories, she confirmed that Tony’s winning star had successfully undergone the procedure, which saw a tube inserted into a throat opening, which caused him to will allow you to breathe without using your mouth, nose and throat.
“He’s on the trachea!” They did it, and he’s fine, and he doesn’t have a fan anymore, “she said.
She added, “We’ve been trying to do this for Nick for so many weeks now, and it just keeps getting blocked and growing back because of his health. “
Doctors had previously planned to remove the star from the Rock of Ages last week, but he developed a fever soon after his leg amputation, which delayed the procedure.
