UPDATED Encouraging News about Broadway Star Nick Cordero from Wife Amanda: “It’s all about small wins in the ICU”


UPDATE THURSDAY 4/16 2PM: “If the doctors feel confident they will remove the ECMO machine so that his heart and lungs will run on their own. They are also taking a look into his right leg to gage blood flow there as it has been a big issue. I completely trust Nicks medical team who have worked relentlessly on saving his life. So until I hear he is safe back in his room I’ll be praying and thank you for joining me!”

WEDNESDAY Amanda Kloots, the wife of Broadway star Nick Cordero, offered some encouraging news about her husband on Wednesday afternoon. Nick has been unconscious since April 1st in a Los Angeles hospital with COVID-19. Kloots has been through the wringer but things seem to be looking up now. S

She wrote on Instagram: “Small wins! We just some good news and it’s all about small wins in the ICU. Nick is getting stronger and the AMAZING doctors and nurses think they can take him off ECMO soon! This would mean his heart and lungs would be functioning on their own. Anything can change in an instant, but we are staying positive! HE IS HEARING US GUYS! Sing with me at 3pm today! LIVE YOUR LIFE”

Everyday at 6pm Eastern, Kloots has Cordero’s fans singing and praying and sending him messages to get better. It seems to be working. We sure hope it is. Looking forward to more progress tomorrow.
