Fitness Instructor Amanda Kloots is not giving up on her husband, Nick Cordero, any time soon. The Waitress actor has been battling the coronavirus for the past 90 days at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Amanda shared an update on his condition during an appearance on CBS This Morning on Thursday, where she vowed to not stop supporting Nick, no matter how difficult it gets.
“He’s still fighting. He’s in there and he is fighting. So if he can still fight after 90 days, I can still fight after 90 days.”
Amanda provided an update on Nick’s condition. The actor can’t move his body yet and is still extremely weak. He can only answer questions through eye movements, though she shared that the nurses insist her husband answers her “questions the best.” In a “perfect world,” Nick would be able to get a double lung transplant down the road to have a good quality of life. Amanda acknowledged that a lot of stars would have to align for that to happen.
Doctors have told Amanda on four separate occasions that the actor may not make it. He has defied the odds each time, however.
“God is the only person that will decide when and if my husband goes,” she explained.
Amanda shared that — while she tries her best to stay positive — the severe ups and downs of her husband’s battle sometimes makes it hard to do. As The Inquisitr previously reported, she called the current state of Nick’s hospital stay a “vicious ICU dance circle.” She described an ongoing cycle of never having everything going right at the same time.
“Don’t get me wrong, I have my days, but I have to stay determined, I have to stay positive, I have to stay strong for my husband,” she said.
She insisted that the support of her family has helped her on the toughest of days. Her parents have been staying with her recently to support her and help care for the couple’s one-year-old son. Amanda admitted that she came home from the hospital after a visit with Nick the other day “exhausted and sad.” She said she let out her frustrations in front of her parents through a good yell.
“Even strong people break,” she stated.
Restrictions have just recently been lifted at Cedars-Sinai in the past few weeks, allowing Amanda to finally visit Nick in person. Before that, she relied on FaceTime updates and phone conversations with hospital staff to keep tabs on his situation.
