Amanda Kloots posted an update on her husband’s status on her Instagram stories on Thursday.
Kloots said it was good news that, even with a low blood count, tests showed that her 41-year-old husband was not bleeding inside. However, on another front, the news was not good.
“However, we have learned that due to COVID, Nick’s lungs are severely damaged,” she said. “It looks like he has smoked for 50 years,” they said. They are so damaged. “
She went on to say that there were “holes in her lungs where, obviously, you don’t want there to be holes”.
Cordero was in place for a Tony in 2014 for his role in “Bullets Over Broadway”.
According to his wife, Cordero struggled with multiple complications from Covid-19 and last month had his leg amputated.
Kloots appeared on “CBS This Morning” on Thursday and spoke about the massive support they have received since he became ill.
“I feel like there is an army of people behind him, behind us, and I just think – I’m thrilled when I say it,” she said. “I just think he will wake up. “
Cordero had still not regained consciousness on Friday after weeks of being removed from sedation.
Kloots promoted #WakeUpNick online, which saw people from around the world posting to support the actor in “Rock of Ages”.
“It’s May 1st. Nick was induced and put on a ventilator in the ICU on April 1, “Kloots posted on Instagram Friday in the caption for a photo showing a #WakeUpNick banner. “New month, same goal!” YOU CAN MAKE IT BABY! In addition, our neighbors are great. “
