Broadway star Amanda Kloots’ wife said on Thursday to “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King that “a lot has to line up” for a transplant to take place.
“It is most likely the possibility,” said Kloots of the transplant. “99% chance he needs it to live the kind of life I know my husband would want to live. ”
She said Cordero is still “extremely weak” after being in the hospital’s intensive care unit for three months.
She visits him in the hospital every day, she said to King, calling it “a vicious circle or the dance of intensive care because you just feel like you’re in this swing of doing the turn, around, around like a hamster wheel. “
She continued, “I tell her every day before I go, I say,” Okay, here’s what you need to focus on. We both sit in our new house, Elvis is in bed and we listen to “Our house” “in our, you know, in Laurel Canyon. ”
Cordero and Kloots are the parents of his one-year-old son Elvis.
Cordero, who was admitted to hospital in late March, has emerged from a coma and is Covid negative, according to his wife. He had his right leg amputated and received a temporary pacemaker for his heart which has since been withdrawn. It is now “stable,” added Kloots.
” He is fine. It is stable, ”she said. “He can always open his eyes, and when he is alert and awake, he will respond to commands by raising or lowering the questions, yes or no.” When I ask him, he’ll even try to smile or move his jaw. The nurses all said he best answered my questions. ”
