Broadway star Nick Cordero’s wife says he may move off ventilator- but docs think he should’ve woken up in virus fight – The Sun
BROADWAY star Nick Cordero's wife said he may be moved off ventilator.
However she said they're in a "waiting game," as docs think he should've woken up in his coronavirus fight.
Nick's wife, Amanda Kloots, said yesterday in her Instagram stories Nick's doctors are considering slowly taking him off the ventilator.
They'll instead insert a breathing tube "to help him be more comfortable."
She added: "The doctors said that there was nothing on the MRI that would show that he won’t wake up, which is amazing.
"We are so happy about that because that was a big worry for all of us."
The fitness instructor explained however, Nick has been off sedation for nearly two weeks.
His medical team thinks he should have woken up by now.
Although the delay may be because Nick had been heavily sedated when he was initially hospitalized, Amanda said.
She went on: "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.
'He’s on Nick time and when he wakes up, we’ll all be here to celebrate it."
Amanda also shared Nick's doctors are gradually reducing medications and taking him off machines.
She said soon he'll be off the blood pressure medication, as well as trying to reduce dialysis.
The mom called every step one of his "small little wins."
Last week Nick's leg was amputated because of "blood flow issues coming down to his foot."
He previously needed to be resuscitated after undergoing emergency surgery in order to prevent a blood clot.
Nick's been in the intensive care unit since late last month.
He first went to the hospital due to difficulty breathing because of a pneumonia.
The Tony Award-nominated actor tested negative twice for coronavirus before a third one reported positive.
Nick previously starred the Broadway musicals Rock of Ages, A Bronx Tale, Waitress and Bullets Over Broadway.
He and Amanda share 10-month-old son, Elvis, together.
