AceShowbiz - Broadway star Nick Cordero is getting better. A day after being reported to have been unconscious and fighting for his life in an intensive care unit in a Los Angeles hospital, the 41-year-old Tony Award-nominated actor is finally in a stable condition, but is still waiting for the result of his third coronavirus test.
On Wednesday, April 1, Nick's wife Amanda Kloots offered fans an update on his health through a series of Instagram Stories. Revealing he has twice tested negative for COVID-19, she shared, "Doctors are convinced though that it is COVID so they did a third test." She further assured that Nick is "doing BETTER! His body is responding well to the medication for COVID and he needs less oxygen from the ventilator. His latest chest x-ray is also better!"
In another post, Amanda wrote, "We are still waiting for a confirmed test result that is COVID. The doctor has told me that he is stable. That his oxygen levels are ok." She, however, noted that medical personnel warned her "that [she] need to prepare [herself] for the long haul because we are at the beginning of this."
Thanking everyone for their thoughts and prayers, Amanda added that the support she has received "is overwhelming in the best way." She additionally stated in a following update that she didn't feel "alone in this fight." She told her devotees, "I am a firm believer in the power of prayer so I thank you for it. I do believe Nick will get through this. One day at a time. I'm staying positive."
Amanda went on to "thank God" for her 10-month-old son Elvis, "who kept me preoccupied and smiling as he gets into mischief every day."
On March 31, Amanda revealed that her Canadian actor husband, who starred in "Bullets Over Broadway" and "Waitress", was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Sharing a black-and-white photo of Nick holding their son, she pleaded with fans, "My sweet husband needs your prayers please."
"Nick has been sick for a while with what we were told last week was pneumonia," she explained. "Unfortunately we think he was misdiagnosed and we are waiting to hear if this is in fact COVID. He is scared, in the ICU and now unconscious so his body can get enough oxygen. We are all trying to stay positive and strong knowing that he is in the best care."
