Home Theater Broadway Star Nick Cordero’s Wife Summarizes His 38 Days in the ICU...

Broadway star Nick Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, has been detailing his long stay in the hospital with corona virus on Instagram. She’s also been raising their toddler son, and trying not lose it. Tonight she summarized Nick’s condition so far. Keep in mind, he’s still unconscious.

Kloots writes: “What this man has gone through! Nick is 41 years old. He had no pre-existing health conditions. We do not know how he got COVID-19 but he did. He went to the ER on March 30th and intubated on a ventilator on April 1. Since then has he has suffered an infection that caused his heart to stop, he needed resuscitation, he had two mini strokes, went on ECMO, needed surgery to removal an ECMO cannula that was restricting blood flow to his leg, a faciatomy to relieve pressure on the leg, an amputation of his right leg, an MRI to further investigate brain damage, several bronchial sweeps to clear out his lungs, a sepsis infection causing septic shock, a fungus in his lungs, holes in his lungs, a tracheotomy, blood clots, low blood count and platelet levels, and a temporary pacemaker to assist his heart. He has spent 38 days now in the ICU. This disease does not only effect old people. This is real. A perfectly healthy 41 year old man! “

The latest is that Amanda goes to the hospital every day and sits outside in her car because she’s not allowed inside. She plays Nick’s record, “Love Your Life,” at full blast. All their friends do, too, all over the country, and on her Instagram stories. Their kid, Elvis, is very cute, and she never shows us that she might break down. But she keeps being upbeat, and encouraging Elvis, and recording videos to show Nick when he wakes up. All she wants is for him to wake up. Everyone who’s ever seen Nick on stage or met him is rooting for him and sending prayers and love to this family. There has to be a happy ending to this story.
