After some optimistic signs in Nick Cordero’s recovery from COVID, things took a turn for the worse yesterday. Earlier this week, his wife, Amanda Kloots, excitedly shared that he’d experienced a “small win” in his recovery. But his health got worse Wednesday, she said, asking fans for their prayers during an Instagram Live stream. Nick Cordero has battled a series of coronavirus-related complications since he was hospitalized in March. He spent weeks on a ventilator and had to have his leg amputated after issues with blood clotting.
“Nick has had a bad morning,” she said. “Unfortunately, things are going downhill at the moment, so I am asking again for all the prayers, mega-prayers, right now.”
“Please cheer and please pray for Nick today, and I know that this virus is not going to get him down,” Kloots said, wiping tears from her eyes. “It’s not how his story ends, so just keep us in your thoughts and prayers today.”
She did not elaborate on the nature of the health issue, but has previously said that Cordero has suffered severe lung damage from the disease.
Cordero was nominated for a Tony Award in 2014 for his role in “Bullets Over Broadway.” He’s also appeared on television in episodes of “Blue Bloods,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Lilyhammer.”
