Nick Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, said the Broadway actor had surgery to remove his right leg because of complications from coronavirus.
As Nick Cordero hits 75 days in the hospital, his wife Amanda Kloots is urging people to stay safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Broadway star, 41, has been hospitalized in intensive care due to severe complications from COVID-19.
In a post to Instagram Monday, Kloots shared a photo of herself in a face mask and a caption urging her followers to take the virus seriously.
“This is my reminder to you to stay safe, wear your mask, wash your hands, social distance and don’t leave your home unless you have to. You don’t want this virus,” she wrote. “You don’t want your loved one to get this virus. It’s still here and unfortunately increasing again.”
She continued, “I never thought Nick or I would get COVID and we both thought of we did we would be able to stay at home and recover. Nick is 41 years old, in shape and had no preexisting health conditions. He is going on day 75 in the ICU. My heart breaks for him everyday. Please be safe”
Staying Apart, Together: How to cope after a tragic week
Since his original diagnosis, Cordero has tested negative for the virus but suffered from a lung infection at the end of last month and remains on a ventilator. He also recently began stem cell treatment last week to help heal his lungs.
Kloots, a celebrity fitness trainer, has kept her more than 322,000 Instagram followers well-informed on Cordero’s latest highs and lows as she continues to look for the positives and blast her husband’s music with their baby Elvis.
“Where there is faith, there is hope,” Kloots wrote earlier this month. “Where there is hope, there can be a miracle! Like my dad has said since day one, every day he’s still with us is a miracle. I believe God is with us, with the doctors and with Nick.”
