Kloots took to her Instagram Story on Saturday to share how her husband, Cordero, had to have his right leg amputated after suffering complications from the coronavirus. Later on in the day, Kloots shared: “[Cordero] made it out of surgery alive and is headed to his room to rest and recover.”

The Tony Award-nominated actor had been treated with blood thinners to help with clotting in his leg. However, his doctors had to stop the treatment because it was causing internal bleeding.

Cordero’s leg amputation

Earlier on Saturday, Kloots explained: “We took him off blood thinners but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today.” On March 31, Cordero was taken to the intensive care unit (ICU) at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Being misdiagnosed with pneumonia

Thinking he was misdiagnosed, the pair got him a coronavirus test. She explained how “scared” he was and that he was in the ICU unconscious “so his body can get enough oxygen.”
