Broadway Star, Nick Cordero, fights lung infection as he continues to battle against COVID-19. However, his wife, Amanda Kloots, continues to celebrate every victory in her husband's battle against COVID-19.
Cordero, who currently has an infection in his lungs, which causes fluid secretion, recently had less fluid in his lungs than previous times when the doctors cleaned it out. She talked about this during a health update, which she shared via her Instagram story.
While this does not mean Cordero is free from the lung infection, Amanda still celebrated the little victory by posting a selfie of herself on her Instagram story and captioning it "Small Win!"
Kloots's new health goal for Nick is for his lung infection to be resolved so that he can start breathing on his own again. She shared the goal alongside a throwback photo of her and Nick. She wrote,
"...our new goal for Nick is for his lung infection to clear up so that we can start breathing trials and get him off the ventilator!"
Apart from getting his lungs cleaned out, the actor is also on antibiotics to help get rid of the infection. Just like her previous goals, this one also comes with a hashtag.
The fitness instructor is using #Offthevent this time, and her last one, which she used while Cordero was still in a medically induced coma, was #WakeUpNick.
She used this until her husband woke up from the coma just over a week ago. Cordero's progress so far led 73-year-old Sylvester Stallone to send him an uplifting message.
Amanda shared the video of Sylvester, giving Nick the much-needed encouragement on her Instagram page. Sylvester said,
"I know to have gotten as far as you have gotten, you've got what it takes, "You have that eye of the tiger, you have that talent…"
Although Nick has not entirely recovered, he is making a lot of progress with his mental health as he is getting stronger daily.
Nick's stay in the hospital began in late March, and he had initially been admitted for pneumonia before he tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.
For Kloots, who misses her husband a lot, the situation is the hardest one she has ever faced. She has received lots of support from people, including a GOFUNDME page put together by their friends, and is optimistic that they will get through the difficult time.
