Amanda Kloots, Nick Cordero’s wife, took to social media recently to give an update about his health. The Broadway star is one of many celebrities that have contracted the novel coronavirus disease.

Taking to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday, Kloots shared a video where she revealed that her Cordero, 41, was making progress. She explained that his doctors said he was showing early signs of tracking.

That meant he was starting to track the movement of objects with his eyes. She emotionally revealed how her brother, Todd, had left on the day when the instructor received "probably some of the best news that we've gotten so far."

CORDERO’S SMALL MOVEMENTS

Todd had been staying with his sister for a month to give her support while her husband is in hospital. Kloots also shared that the tracking meant her husband had “started to wake up, which is huge, early, early, early signs."

The fitness guru revealed that Cordero had opened his eyes and was now “slowly starting to show signs." The star’s wife was quick to emphasize that her husband’s movements were “super small” and more than one nurse had seen them.

ACTOR STARTING TO WAKE UP

She shared that the doctors believed this was “just a great sign and that he's starting to wake up.” With Mother’s Day coming up, Kloots hoped that her husband would wake up for her and his mother.

The “Rock of Ages” star was first admitted to the Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with respiratory problems after being diagnosed with pneumonia. He then became unconscious shortly afterward and was placed in a medically induced coma.

SUFFERING FROM BLOOD CLOTS

While recovering, Cordero started having issues with blood clots in his right leg. The clots prevented blood from circulating to his toes and he was put on blood thinners.

HAVING HIS LEG AMPUTATED

The medication started causing other problems which led to his leg being amputated. He’s been in the intensive care unit (ICU) since late March 2020.
