On Thursday, the wife of Broadway star Amanda Kloots told Gayle King host “CBS This Morning” that “a lot of things will have to be coordinated” for the transplant to be done.
“It’s most likely a possibility,” Kloots said of the transplant. “99 percent chance he’ll need to live the kind of life I know my husband would want to live.”
She said Cordero is still “extremely weak” after being in the hospital’s intensive care unit for three months.
She visits him at the hospital every day, she told King, calling it “a vicious circle or a dance at the ICU because you just feel like you’re in this touring swing, around, around the hamster’s wheel.”
But Kloots said she was still trying to stay positive.
“Four times I have been told that he will not survive. Sometimes even he will not survive overnight, but he has,” she told the king. “He fights. I see him every day. Nick’s doctor sees it. And as long as he’s there and he’s fighting, I’ll keep fighting him.”
She continued, “I tell him every day before I leave, I say,‘ Okay, here’s what you need to focus on. The two of us sit in our new house, Elvis is in bed and we listen to “Our House” in our house, you know, Laurel Canyon. “
Cordero and Kloots are the parents of one-year-old son Elvis.
Cordero, who was admitted to the hospital in late March, is out of a coma and towards Kana, towards his wife, is not negative. His right leg was amputated and he received a temporary pacemaker for the heart that was removed. It is now “stable”, Kloots added.
“He’s doing well. He’s stable,” she said. “He can still open his eyes, and when he’s awake and awake, he’ll respond to orders by looking up or down, yes or no. When I ask him, he’ll even try to smile or move his jaw. The sisters all said he answered my questions best.” “
