Nick Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, gave a hopeful update on the actor’s condition on Sunday (June 7) as he battles the coronavirus.
“S0 I think this weekend was a good weekend, it was uneventful,” she said in a series of videos posted to her Instagram Stories. “Which, uneventful in the ICU is a good weekend. I think he had a weekend of rest, a weekend of growing, strength in his body and recovering a little bit. … Not too many changes were made, which is also a good sign, but one really good sign is his white blood count number is way down. So it has been as high as 65,000; we are now at 30,000. A frame of reference: a normal healthy person is around 15-20,000, even lower sometimes. So 30,000 is a great sign that things are moving in the right direction.”
For more than two months, the Broadway actor has been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Cordero has suffered multiple complications due to COVID-19, including major lung damage, and clotting issues that led to one of his legs being amputated. By early May, the Tony nominee had finally regained consciousness from his medically-induced coma, though he remains on a ventilator.
Kloots signed off with positive thoughts for the coming week, saying, “I don’t know why — I just have a really good feeling about this week, so I’m just gonna keep praying for our miracles and keep praying for that healing and God is with us … Love you!”
