Amanda Kloots says Nick Cordero is ‘slowly recovering’ after a new lung infection and gushes she is ‘really proud’ – The Sun

BROADWAY star Nick Cordero's coronavirus battle is far from over as his wife Amanda Kloots urges fans to hug their loved ones.

Despite giving a positive update on the star's battle on Friday saying he was "defying odds. He is fighting and showing small improvements each day,” Amanda revealed the extent of his struggle.

She revealed in a video message on her Instagram stories: "It's been a tough week, Nick's had some new lung infection earlier this week and since then he's been slowly recovering which is great.

"Day by day, hour by hour, he's getting better and slowly getting back to where he was before this infection came about and that's good."

Amanda who was looking after the couple's 11-month-old son Elvis, then told fans the doctors hoped Nick could soon come off some of his medication and that the settings on his ventilators and other machines could "come down".

She said: "Right now we're just looking for slow, steady, small wins to keep him resting and recovering."

Supporting her husband from afar during his 43 days in hospital had clearly taken a toll on the mom-of-one who said she was very proud of Nick, but was feeling very "exhausted."

Amanda gushed: "I'm proud of how strong he is and what he's gone through and his will."

"This has been the craziest ride ever, but we're still here and we're still fighting."

The fitness guru reflected on the experience and encouraged fans to "hug your loved ones".


She said getting emotional: "Go give them a really good love hug and let them know 'I love you'.

"Because these are times right now… don't take a day for granted."

The update comes after Amanda broke down in tears and revealed his recovery "is going a little downhill" last week.

The Tony Award-nominated actor for Bullets over Broadway has been in the ICU since late March, with his other half keeping fans updated on his progress.

That news came about a week after Amanda announced that Nick was finally conscious although he was continuing to fight off a lingering lung infection.

Nick had suffered complications from COVID-19 which forced doctors to amputate his right leg because of blood clots.

Amanda also revealed the doctors' upcoming "long-term big goals" for Nick include moving him off of dialysis and off of a ventilator.

He woke up from a month-long coma last Tuesday, but still has a number of serious hurdles to clear before getting a clean bill of health.

Amanda said on Instagram: "There’s a new hashtag in town and it is #OffTheVent because if we can make this happen, like we did with #WakeUpNick, that will mean that this infection in Nick’s lungs is gone, or not necessarily gone, but better, and that means we can get him off the ventilator.

She added: "We are still dealing with this lingering infection in Nick’s lung.

"This infection that is left over from when he went into septic shock the last time is still in his lungs and just kind of sitting there. They are doing everything they can to clean it out every day but it’s just not getting better.”

Amanda remained hopeful saying, “there’s no reason why we can’t get this infection to go away.”

She added: “Nick is fighting for his life every day in that ICU and I know he isn’t giving up. We’re not giving up. Nobody is giving up.

"This infection is gonna go away and he is gonna get off that ventilator. And that’s the only mindset that I have right now.”

Amanda's recently had a video call with Nick on Mother's Day.

The situation is very difficult for Amanda who is not allowed to be with her husband physically because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

She explained in a caption on her Stories: "[sic] A plead… I know this isn't possible but today is miracle day so why not ask. I just wish I could see him. Hold his hand. Touch his face. I do believe this would help him WAKE UP!"

Last weekend, the Tony nominee had to be resuscitated after undergoing emergency surgery in order to prevent a blood clot.

Of the decision to amputate his leg, Amanda shared: "He's a dancer. He's an actor. He's a performer.

"It was not an easy decision to make."

The couple's friends set up a GoFundMe page to help pay Nick's medical bills.

Nick Viall and Hannah Ann Are Flirting on Instagram Right Now and I! Fully! Stan!

Look, at this point there’s almost no one in Bachelor Nation that Nick Viall hasn’t been linked to, but he’s currently out here getting vaguely flirty with Peter Weber’s ex-girlfriend Hannah Ann Sluss on Instagram and I’m very much here for it.

Because why not, Hannah went ahead and posted some bikini pics to Instagram, and Nick hopped into her comments being all “As far as caption go…’Dear Peter…’ would have been a home run.” Hannah responded that Nick “nailed it” and didn’t seem to hate the suggestion that he should “get on this.” Basically, there was a vibe okay? That! Is! That!

As a reminder, Hannah won Peter’s final rose and a massive engagement ring—but he broke up with her on camera because he couldn’t ~give her his heart~ or something (IDK, honestly trying to block that entire season out). Peter went on to date Madison Prewett and then Kelley Flanagan, while Hannah’s been linked to NFL player Mason Rudolph.

Back in April, Hannah showed up on Off the Vine With Kaitlyn Bristowe, saying she had a “FaceTime date” with someone but that their relationship is “just a nice little quarantine fling.”

Hmmmm, whatever, still think Nick should shoot his shot.

Broadway star Nick Cordero’s wife vows the couple WILL dance again after his leg is amputated due to coronavirus – The Sun

BROADWAY star Nick Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots has vowed the couple will dance again as she shares a beautiful video of the two dancing on their wedding day.

The 41-year-old Rock of Ages actor had to have his leg amputated due to coronavirus complications.

Amanda, 38, posted the adorable video of the two dancing on their wedding day to Instagram, writing: “Part of our wedding dance ❤️ that our friends @swaywithmeny choreographed for us. I love dancing with you @nickcordero1 and we WILL dance again!”

The dancer admitted the devastating news he may never walk again after revealing he was in ICU.

She said: "We are on day 18 of Nick being sedated in the ICU. It is April 18. We got some difficult news yesterday.

"Basically, we had issues with his right leg with clotting and getting blood down to his toes. And it just isn't happening with surgery and everything.

Part of our wedding dance ❤️ that our friends @swaywithmeny choreographed for us. I love dancing with you @nickcordero1 and we WILL dance again!

A post shared byAK! ⭐️ (@amandakloots) on

"So, they had him on blood thinners for the clotting and, unfortunately, the blood thinners were causing other issues: blood pressure and some internal bleeding in his intestines," she continued. "So we took him off the blood thinners, but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg. So the right leg will be amputated today."

The situation is very difficult for Amanda as she is not allowed to be with her husband physically because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

She explained in a caption on her Stories: "[sic] A plead… I know this isn't possible but today is miracle day so why not ask.

"I just wish I could see him. Hold his hand. Touch his face. I do believe this would help him WAKE UP!"


Last weekend, the Tony nominee had to be resuscitated after undergoing emergency surgery in order to prevent a blood clot.

There is a GoFundMe fundraiser for Nick which has so far raised more than $323,000.

Amanda told her followers: “I really thank you so much. We have a new home that we’re renovating right now so there are going to be some changes that need to be made and that will really help us. There’s medical bills and, you know, we’re gonna get Nick the best rehab that we possibly can now for his leg. It’s all because of you guys.”

The talented pair met while both performing in Manhattan musical Bullets Over Broadway and share 10-month-old son Elvis together.

The father of one, who starred in Rock of Ages, has been in hospital for over two weeks.

Recovery was going well until the weekend when his condition went downhill.

The fitness instructor revealed earlier in that week that Nick had surgery and was doing well, but there was a setback.

She told viewers: "The doctor said for Nick’s heart and lungs right now they’re in the best condition that they could be. The fact that he’s off [the ECMO machine] is great.

"His right leg is still an issue. There has been some blood flow issues coming down to his foot."

The mom of one continued: "We don’t know if he’ll be able to walk again. We don’t know if he can walk again — what that’ll look like.”
