Nick Cordero‘s wife, Amanda Kloots, took to Instagram on Thursday to give fans an update on his health.
The Broadway star’s spouse said “yesterday was a very hard day.”
“It started off with a low blood count,” she said. “Luckily Nick’s CT scans came back clear of internal bleeding as of now. So, that was a huge blessing, huge blessing. However, we did learn that due to COVID, Nick’s lungs are severely damaged to look almost like he’s been a smoker for 50 years, they’d said. They’re that damaged. There are holes in his lungs where obviously you don’t want holes to be.”
Kloots explained doctors discovered this after Cordero’s “oxygen count went down” and they “went deep into his lungs.”
“They cleaned out his lungs again. It wasn’t as bad as a couple days before, but they had to clean out his lungs again,” she continued. “I think the plan today is to do a scan with ink to light up his lungs so that they can get a better picture of what’s going on. And, they want to find out from this culture what this fungus is so that they can specifically give the right medication to attack that fungus.”
