Many Americans have suffered through a shocking variety of COVID-19 symptoms in recent months, but few coronavirus victims' stories have gone public with such details as that of Broadway star and TV actor Nick Cordero. His wife Amanda Kloots has been updating friends, fans and strangers about each challenging step and setback on Cordero's road to recovery. Having never woken up from his medically induced coma, Cordero is reportedly now suffering from large holes in his rapidly deteriorating lungs.
After having appeared on CBS This Morning to recall the harrowing day when Nick Cordero was first admitted to the hospital, Amanda Kloots went live with another Instagram Story that offered more clarity on her husband's current situation. Here's how she explained his lung situation:
That obviously sounds like a frightening situation for anyone to go through, for both the comatose Nick Cordero and his wife. Amanda Kloots is having to take all of these medical updates in stride while continuing to raise their son who is still less than a year old.
One of the next procedures that doctors will be doing with Nick Cordero, per Kloots, is a scan that involves using an ink so that they can better identify the fungus on the actor's lungs so that they can find a way to combat it. In her update, Kloots gave one of her husband's doctor's partial credit for keeping her hope alive during these unpredictable updates. In her words:
Having already gone through Nick Cordero's elongated coma, his initial issues that required his leg to be amputated, the need for a temporary pacemaker, and now the realization that his lungs are filled with holes. Not to mention all the other major and minor news that she's gotten along the way.
Amanda Kloots also talked about the completely understandable emotional reactions that she's had in recent weeks that belie the relatively calm and collected demeanor that she's maintained in her videos. Here's how she explained it:
Outside of her health updates, Amanda Kloots also shared an awesome sing-along video that the cast of the Rock of Ages stage show put together remotely to the tune of "Don't Stop Believin'." Check it out below!

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
