Amanda Kloots took to her Instagram Story to reveal how a new infection caused her husband’s health to temporarily go “downhill.” She started off her update by confessing: “It’s been a tough week.”

The fitness instructor explained: “Nick suffered from some new lung infection in his lungs earlier this week.” However, the positive side of this was that “since then he’s been slowly recovering.”

AN INFECTION IN HIS LUNG

Kloots shared how Cordero was “getting back to where he was before this infection came about.” Before his latest setback, the actor battled with a “lingering” infection in his left lung.

The infection has been there since he went into septic shock last month. In late March 2020, the star was first admitted to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

BEING TAKEN TO HOSPITAL

At the time, his family had thought he was suffering from pneumonia. Kloots continued her latest by informing her husband’s fans that the goal now was for his slow and steady improvement.

She revealed how they hoped he’d be able to get off some of the medications he was on and for the machine settings to “come down.” Cordero has been on a ventilator due to the ongoing infection.
