Home Theater UPDATE “Bronx Tale” Star Nick Cordero Survives Surgery to Amputate Leg After...

UPDATE from Amanda: “AND right after we finished singing tonight I got a phone call from the hospital saying that Nick made it out of surgery alive and he is headed to his room to rest and recover! AMEN! He is hearing us!!! He is hearing the support, the love and your voices everyday. I just know it. Thank you God for watching over him and for the incredible doctors and nurses @cedarssinai hospital! ❤️ I may sleep tonight.”

EARLIER It’s good news, bad news as Nick Cordero struggles through his battle against COVID-19.

The Broadway star of “Waitress” and “A Bronx Tale”  is having a leg amputation caused by blood flow and clotting issues. His wife, Amanda Kloots, posted the news to Instagram.

“We got some difficult news yesterday. Basically we’ve had issues in his right leg with clotting and getting blood down to his toes and it just isn’t happening with surgery and everything. So they had him on blood thinners for the clotting,” Kloots said.

“Unfortunately, the blood thinners were causing some other issues — blood pressure and some internal bleeding in his intestines. So we took him off the blood thinners. But that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today.”

As long as Nick lives, and can get back on stage, that’s what’s important. Maybe he won’t tap dance, but he can sing and act. And his family will have him with them.

Say prayers.
