Nick Cordero's Wife Says the 'Virus Is Out of His System' After 2 Negative COVID-19 Tests
While recovering, Cordero began having issues with blood clots in his right leg, which was preventing blood from going to his toes. Doctors had placed him on blood-thinners to help, but the medication only caused other problems, such as a dropping in his blood pressure and internal bleeding in his intestines.
By Saturday, Kloots said his doctors had come to the difficult decision to amputate Cordero’s leg. He successfully made it through the operation later that day.
According to an update from Kloots on Thursday, Cordero has since been doing better, though the family is currently "in a bit of a waiting game" as doctors believe the actor "should have woken up by now" after he was taken out of sedation.
"We are just hoping and praying every day that Nick wakes up and putting that energy and positivity out there because I do believe he will," she said on her Instagram Stories. "He’s on Nick time and when he wakes up, we’ll all be here to celebrate it."
In support of her husband, Kloots has been asking fans and loved ones to sing and dance on social media using the hashtag #WakeUpNick.
A GoFundMe page has also been set up by their friends to support Kloots and raise funds for Cordero’s medical bills. As of Friday afternoon, it has raised $430,392.
