Nick Cordero's Wife Amanda Kloots Preparing Herself 'for the Long Haul' After Actor Placed on Ventilator

Broadway star Nick Cordero is in “stable” condition but has a long road ahead of him after he was hospitalized and placed in intensive care for pneumonia, according to his wife Amanda Kloots.

On Wednesday, the fitness trainer said that Cordero, 41, was responding to medication. While doctors are still confirming what has caused the Broadway star’s health crisis, so far Cordero has tested negative for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“Two negative COVID tests. Doctors are convinced though that it is COVID so they did a third test,” she wrote alongside a photo of Cordero and their son 9-month-old son Elvis Eduardo. “He is doing BETTER! His body is responding well to the medication for COVID and he needs less oxygen from the ventilator.”

She added, “His latest chest x-ray is also better!”

In since-expired Instagram Story from earlier this week, Kloots said that Cordero had been “sick for a while” and he hospitalized on Sunday.

“He’s struggling a lot but I’m keeping positive,” she said. “We’re just hoping Nick pulls through this in this really hard time. It’s been really, really scary but I’m hopeful.”
