Home coronavirus Broadway Star Nick Cordero’s Wife Posts Long Update: “Nick is profoundly weak....

Nick Cordero: his wife Amanda Kloots has posted a long, honest message on Instagram. I have copied it here. This poor guy. Such a lovely man, who everyone adores, and so talented. Yesterday I thought it was day 80. It’s day 85. Three months. He is suffering. So is his family.

“Nick update day 85.

Nick is profoundly weak. Imagine how you feel getting the flu and how it can take your body a full week to recover. Now imagine how Nicks body feels, all that he has gone through and how long it will take him to recover. This will take time, a long time.

He interacts with his eyes, answering questions by looking up for yes and down for no. When he is alert he can also move his jaw. I have been doing passive physical therapy on him to help in any way I can to get him stronger, to keep his joints moving and engage his muscles. He cannot move his body yet. He has had some minor blood infections that are causing little blood pressure issues although those are under control. His vent settings are getting better and his numbers are trending in a better direction. He is relatively stable.

Is this defeating? Sometimes it is, I won’t lie. I wish I would walk into his room and he was able to give me a big smile and hold my hand. But instead of feeling defeated, I turn to feeling determined! I give him any and all energy I can. I tell him goals that the doctors would like to see. I insist that he CAN do this! People may look at me like I’m crazy. They may think that I don’t fully understand his condition because I’m smiling and singing in his room everyday. I’m just not going to mope around and feel sad for myself or him. That is not would Nick would want me to to do. That is not my personality. I fight and I will continue to fight for Nick every single day. With God on our side anything can happen!”
