AceShowbiz - Comatose Broadway actor Nick Cordero is to remain on a ventilator after developing a new fever on Monday, April 27, 2020 morning.
Doctors hoped to take the Tony-winning star off the breathing apparatus this week, but the 41-year-old's wife Amanda Kloots took to her Instagram Stories to explain the move has been delayed.
Nick developed a fever on Monday morning, which "caused his blood pressure to drop slightly," she said, adding, "He's back on a little bit of blood pressure medication, which he was off of, and they are trying to just really make sure that this fever doesn't really go anywhere, get out of control."
Amanda said that medical workers are "doing a couple of tests to try to find out the source of this fever."
"They have got it under control," she added. "They are working on him and taking good care of him, but they are going to set aside the ventilator removal until they get this under control."
The "Rock of Ages" actor has been fighting for his life in a Los Angeles hospital intensive care unit since last month, when he was initially thought to be suffering from pneumonia.
He tested negative at the time for Covid-19, but as his condition worsened, Cordero was found to have actually contracted the virus, and ended up having his right leg amputated last weekend, April 18, 2020 after experiencing blood flow issues.
He has since had a temporary pacemaker fitted due to an irregular heartbeat, but Amanda has assured fans he is "recovering well" amid the health scare.
