Broadway Star Nick Cordero's Body Is 'Responding Well' After Leg Amputation -- As His GoFundMe Surges To Over $350K

Amanda Kloots gives an update on husband Nick Cordero's coronavirus condition after his leg amputation.

Things are looking up for Nick Cordero!

The 41-year-old longtime Broadway star and sometimes TV actor has been in the intensive care unit since March 30 due a particularly bad bout with the coronavirus. And as we reported on Sunday, doctors made the difficult decision to amputate his right leg in order to try to contain some of the scary effects of the illness.

Now, with a successful surgery behind him and an “uneventful” day spent in the ICU on Sunday, Cordero’s concerned wife Amanda Kloots has plenty of good updates for the star’s fans and followers. Kloots, pictured (above) next to Cordero at a 2016 red carpet event, had lots to say in an Instagram Stories update published last night just as he finished another day resting somewhat comfortably, even in his precarious situation:

“An uneventful day in the ICU is a GOOD DAY,” Amanda wrote on IG on Sunday night, adding “It seems like Nicks body is responding well to his surgery and recovering well. I asked for a miracle yesterday because my spirits were low and I think we got one today. He is alive and recovering well.” / (c) Amanda Kloots/Instagram

Wow! The tides may be turning for the better here, and we’re sincerely hoping for the good trend to continue in Cordero’s battle with COVID-19! The actor — who shares 10-month-old son Elvis Eduardo with Kloots — was first admitted to the ICU last month after complaining of pneumonia-like symptoms; after two negative tests for coronavirus, his third one came back positive as his condition worsened, and he’s been on a ventilator ever since.

An Amazing Show Of Support

Family friends started a GoFundMe page to help with Nick’s inevitable medical costs earlier this month, and over the weekend, it surpassed its $350,000 goal — an incredible show of support for the high-profile stage actor. As of early Monday morning, more than 6,000 donors had raised more than $360,000 to offset the medical costs associated with his hospitalization, amputation, and everything else involved.

SO incredible!!! We continue to wish the best for Cordero as he fights back against the coronavirus, and hopefully continues his progress towards a full recovery. It’s still touch-and-go being in the ICU and all, but we’re excited and encouraged by all the progress he’s made this weekend.
