Nick Cordero is currently fighting for his life in the ICU while battling coronavirus.
The 41-year-old Broadway actor’s wife, fitness trainer Amanda Kloots, has been sharing updates every day on Instagram and while he’s making some positive progress, she shared some sad news on Thursday (April 16).
Amanda says there’s a chance that Nick will never walk again.
Nick had surgery to remove the ECMO machine that he was on and it went well. Amanda said, “The doctor said for Nick’s heart and lungs right now they’re in the best condition that they could be. The fact that he’s off (the ECMO machine) is great.”
“His right leg is still an issue,” Amanda added. “There has been some blood flow issues coming down to his foot.”
“We don’t know if he’ll be able to walk again. We don’t know if he can walk again — what that’ll look like,” she continued. “I think that there will definitely be a lot of rehab and definitely physio in order for that leg to get working again. But the good news is that blood is finally running down to his toes.”
Amanda shared a positive update on Wednesday and continued to ask everyone to show their support to Nick during this scary time.
Nick is best known for his work in Broadway shows like Waitress, Bullets Over Broadway, and Rock of Ages.
