Amanda Kloots told fans Sunday not to “take a day for granted,” as husband Nick Cordero continues his months-long recovery against the coronavirus.
In a series of Instagram stories, Kloots reflected on Cordero’s “tough week,” in which the 41-year-old Broadway star suffered a setback, but added things are gradually improving.
“Nick suffered from some new lung infection in his lungs earlier this week, and since then, he’s been slowly recovering, which is great,” Kloots explained. “Day by day, hour by hour, he’s getting better. He’s slowly getting back to where he was before this infection came about.”
Earlier this week, Kloots said Cordero’s health was “going a little downhill at the moment.” The news came shortly after the “Rock of Ages” star woke up from his medically induced coma.
Kloots remains hopeful Cordero “can come off some more medications and that his settings on machines can come down.”
“Right now, we’re just looking for slow, steady, small wins to keep him resting and recovering,” she said.
Cordero has been hospitalized since late March and had his right leg amputated in April as a result of coronavirus complications. Kloots, who has been providing fans with updates on social media, shared earlier this month that Cordero is “still having a little bit of an issue with the infection in his lungs.”
Over the weekend, Kloots gushed over how “proud” she is of Cordero.
“I’m really proud of how strong he is and gosh, what he’s gone through, and his will,” she said. “I’m exhausted, physically, and emotionally and mentally exhausted. This has been the craziest ride ever, but you know, we’re still here, and we’re still fighting.”
Kloots then encouraged fans to embrace their loved ones.
“I would just encourage you, everyone, to hug your loved ones,” Kloots said. “Go really give them a really good love hug, and let them know, ‘I love you.’”
“If you have somebody going through it, hug your people,” she continued. “Do it for me, do it for Nick. Don’t take a day for granted, guys.”
Kloots and Cordero share an 11-month-old son named Elvis.
