Nick Cordero's wife is sharing good news about her husband's condition.
"His mental status is looking good," Amanda Kloots said on her Instagram Story on Thursday. "He's getting better and better everyday, a little bit stronger everyday, so things are looking really good on that front."
The Broadway star isn't totally out of the woods yet, but things are certainly looking up.
"We are still having a little bit of an issue with infection in his lungs," Amanda said, noting she would get an update on that soon. "But mental status, we are on good, good progress. So, yay!"
Amanda and Nick, who share an infant son, have every reason to celebrate the small steps. After being unconscious for about six weeks due to Covid-19 complications, Nick woke up.
"He is awake," Amanda said on May 12. "It's just that Nick is so weak right now that even opening his eyes, closing his eyes, takes out, like, all of his energy."
The Tony-nominated actor has struggled with multiple issues since entering the emergency room on March 30. In a lengthy Instagram post, Amanda said her husband was intubated on a ventilator on April 1. Just over three weeks later, he had his right leg amputated after dealing with blood clots.
While unconscious, he's also suffered two mini strokes, septic shock, fungus in his lungs, and he needed a temporary pacemaker to assist his heart.
"This disease does not only effect old people," Amanda said on May 8. "This is real. A perfectly healthy 41-year-old man!"
Throughout Nick's hospital stay, Amanda has updated fans of her husband condition — for better and for worse — via Instagram. Since he woke up, she's shared many, many videos of fans celebrating that Nick is "Code Rocky," a term used to indicate when coronavirus patients are on their way to a full recovery.
On Wednesday, she even posted a video of Sylvester Stallone sending Nick a supportive message.
"You have an incredibly loving wife and beautiful child and I know to have gotten as far as you have gotten — you got what it takes, you have that eye of the tiger, you have that talent, you have that will," Sly said, adding that's heard Nick is a "born star."
"You have been dealt a horrible hand, tough one, and it takes a strong strong man and a strong family to override that situation," he continued. "To take it and throw it back into life's face and say guess what? 'It's going to take more than that. I'm the man.' You are the man and you're a role model for other people that have to overcome incredible odds. All I can say is keep punching, you're the man."
