Blue Bloods actor Nick Cordero was one of many in the entertainment industry to be diagnosed with COVID-19, but his struggles with the complications have been well-documented online thanks to his wife, Amanda Kloots. She has shared updates on her husband's condition as well as provided a look at what families go through while their loved ones are isolated and unwell, giving a window into the illness. Now, Kloots has revealed that she has been advised to say goodbye to her husband, but she still has faith:
I’ve been told a couple times that he won’t make it. I’ve been told to say goodbye. I’ve been told it would take a miracle. Well, I have faith. Faith that is small as a mustard seed sometimes, but that is all you need sometimes. He’s still here and despite his odds gets slightly, slightly better every day. Where there is faith, there is hope. Where there is hope, there can be a miracle! Like my dad has said since day one, every day he’s still with us is a miracle. I believe God is with us, with the doctors and with Nick.
Amanda Kloots' latest statement on Instagram reveals that even though she hasn't been getting hopeful news or advice, she still has faith that her husband will get his miracle and recover. Nick Cordero recently hit Day 60 in the hospital since his diagnosis with COVID-19, which brought Kloots to social media with some updates. She shared that she slowed down on the updates because his situation has been at a standstill and there was nothing to do but wait to see if the latest treatment attempt would work.
That said, Nick Cordero is negative for COVID-19 at this point despite his previous diagnosis, and his ongoing health issues have been complications from what his body went through. His body has certainly gone through a lot. He was kept in a medically-induced coma in an attempt to treat him, and Amanda Kloots made the decision that his leg should be amputated to save his life. The amputation didn't end his troubles, however, and he remained comatose for quite some time, making progress in small steps.
Nick Cordero did wake from his coma nearly three weeks ago, but Amanda Kloots did share that he wasn't out of the woods yet despite the progress. That said, one thing that has remained consistent throughout the ordeal has been Kloots' optimism and hope regarding her husband's status. Her updates via social media and interviews shared details without showing her despairing.
Take a look at the adorable photo that Amanda Kloots posted along with her message of faith:
Amanda Kloots' public updates on her husband's status actually resulted in Nick Cordero receiving a message from Sylvester Stallone, including a tribute to Kloots and a mention that he has the "eye of the tiger." Kloots and her family were also able to stay close to Cordero despite his isolation thanks to actor and friend Zach Braff, who welcomed them to stay in his guest house.
We can only hope that Amanda Kloots and the rest of the family are able to stay close and continue to receive the support they need in this difficult time. Our thoughts here at CinemaBlend are with Nick Cordero, Amanda Kloots, and their loved ones in this difficult time.
