Amanda Kloots is sharing a more positive update on her husband Nick Cordero. On Thursday, Kloots said that the Broadway actor appeared to be taking a “step forward” in his ongoing battle with COVID-19 in an Instagram story, People reported. This latest update comes just a day after Kloots said that her husband’s condition appeared to be “going downhill.”
“So one of the things that I have learned about this whole process is that the land of the ICU is one step forward, two steps back. And that’s kind of what happened to us in these last couple 24 hours,” Kloots said.
Kloots then thanked the doctors who had been guiding her through this journey and said that she had found strength in prayer throughout Cordero’s treatment process. Kloots and Cordero share an 11-month-old son named Elvis Eduardo.
“Wow. It’s been another roller coaster, but this one goes out to the doctors and nurses at Cedars-Sinai, the power of prayer and the power of energy and support. And positivity is, I’m sorry, in my opinion, insurmountable,” Kloots continued.
Kloots said that those who loved Cordero had been lifting him up with songs and positive thoughts, and she believed it was making a difference.
“He’s not done. He’s not done,” Kloots said.

I can’t believe I get to be his mom. Everyday this guy makes me smile, laugh and my heart sing. I am so lucky to have him in my life. Nick always wanted to be a dad. It’s very hard to see Elvis growing and changing so much everyday, knowing how much Nick would love to be here with us. When Nick hears Elvis over the phone though his eyes light up! It’s really sweet. I know he’s fighting for Elvis!!! I know he wants to see Elvis grow up, to teach him things, see him walk, hear him talk and take him to his first day of school! I constantly tell him that he will, that he is the best dad and that Elvis needs him! ????
