Nick Cordero might likely be in need of both his lungs be transplanted post he got affected by corona.
Speaking on Thursday the Broadway actor’s spouse Amanda kloots said in “CBS This Morning” to presenter Gayle King that “a lot of things would have to line up” to do his transplant.
“That is most likely the possibility,” Kloots said of the transplant. “A 99 percent chance that he would be needing that in order to live the kind of life that I know my husband would want to live.”

Adding to this she said that: Cordero is still “extremely weak” after being kept in ICU in the hospital for almost three months.
Amanda goes to the hospital on a daily basis to see him and shared with King as a “vicious circle or the ICU dance because you just feel like you’re in this momentum of going around, around, around like a hamster wheel.” Yet she is hoping and keeping herself positive.
“They told me four times that he won’t survive. Sometimes even he won’t survive through the night, but he has,” she told King. “He’s fighting. I see it every day. Nick’s doctor sees it. And as long as he’s in there and fighting, I’ll continue to fight with him.”
She continued: “I tell him every day before I leave, I say, ‘Okay, here’s what you have to focus on. The two of us sitting in our new house, Elvis is in bed and we’re listening to ‘Our House’ in our, you know, home in Laurel Canyon.”
The couple shares a 1 yr old son Elvis.

It’s day 90. ⠀ I want to give a huge shout out to the Health Hero’s that are taking care of my husband. Ninety days of extraordinary care and when he was COVID positive they were risking their lives to save his. ⠀ I sit in the hospital and watch the nurses monitor every machine, fix all his lines, watch his levels, turn him, bathe him, attend to his dressings, administer medicines and then ask ME if I need anything…water or crackers?!?! They are absolutely incredible and Elvis and I will always be grateful. ⠀ In efforts to give back Anna and I created a business, @hooray.for, and are giving 50% of the proceeds from the Health Hero’s and Life t-shirt designs to help COVID response. This virus is a real thing and needs to be taken seriously and stopped. We will always do what we can to support that 🤍. We are proud to partner with @bunlimited – a water-based screen printing company that assists in design, prints, and fulfills all our orders!
