Amanda Kloots is sharing a glimmer of positive news regarding her husband Nick Cordero’s battle with COVID-19.
In an emotional update to her Instagram stories Wednesday, Kloots said she received a call from Cordero’s doctor letting her know that her husband is showing “very early” signs of waking up.
“The doctor just called and said that Nick is showing very, very, very, early, early, early stages of tracking, which means he’s starting to wake up, which is huge,” Kloots said through tears. “Early, early, early signs, but basically he’s opened his eyes, but nothing’s been behind it and now he’s slowly starting to show signs.”
Kloots continued, saying that while these are “super small movements” forward, she hopes that Cordero will wake up in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday.
“Maybe he’ll wake up for me and his mom,” she said.
She continued: “Just a really, really good day. I’m feeling a little bit of relief here and I just feel like, what a great phone call to get from the doctor. Just these small, small little wins but it’s showing signs that there’s some hope.”

Kloots’ update comes after she shared also shared news Tuesday that the Broadway star “had a little bit of rocky night” and underwent a lung procedure to remove an infection.
“His oxygen levels went down, but (the doctors) got him right back,” she said. “They did like a lung scraping to get rid of some more infection, and he’s now back to some good numbers, so things tend to be going in the right direction.”
Kloots added: “So far, I think he’s back to being stable with some good-looking things. So, fingers crossed for a good day and the possibility, always, of waking up.”
Cordero, 41, remains in a medically-induced coma following several serious coronavirus complications, including a leg amputation and the insertion of a temporary pacemaker.
He was admitted to the hospital for what was initially thought to be pneumonia, Kloots, a Broadway dancer-turned-celebrity fitness instructor, wrote on Instagram on April 1. Cordero’s initial coronavirus test was negative, although a subsequent one turned up positive for COVID-19.
