Some really good news came from Amanda Kloots this week when she shared that her husband had finally woken up from a coma amid his battle with the novel coronavirus disease.
Kloots, 38, took to her Instagram on Tuesday to announce that Nick Cordero, 41, had finally woken up from a medically induced coma. The Broadway actor also had his leg amputated as part of his coronavirus treatment.
Kloots shared the news in a video with the help of the couple’s infant son, Elvis. The fitness instructor announced: “Dada is awake, he is awake guys. I asked the doctor today, ‘Can we say he’s awake?’”
CORDERO ON A VENTILATOR
She went on to explain how weak her husband was that the effort to open or close his eyes drained his energy. The star’s wife also stated that the Hamilton, Canada native remained on a ventilator.
The fitness teacher explained how he was still battling lung complications as he fights against the virus. Kloots also continued to reveal that Cordero now had the ability to follow commands.
ACTOR IS AWAKE
She shared how this was a sign of his mental cognizance returning at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. However, she clearly stated that his recovery would take a long time.
Kloots also shared how the Tony-nominated actor’s friends and family were happy about the latest developments. The health guru initially revealed that the actor had contracted COVID-19 on April 1, 2020.
KEEPING FANS IN THE LOOP
She’s since made it a point to keep his fans updated via social media. The star has been in the intensive care unit for more than 40 days after arriving at the emergency room in late March.
