Nick Cordero's Wife Reveals He Has a 'New Infection' That Doctors Have 'Under Control'

The mom of one — who shares 12-month-old son Elvis Eduardo with Cordero — added that having Cordero in the ICU for 85 days has been emotionally and mentally straining.

"Is this defeating? Sometimes it is, I won’t lie," she shared. "I wish I would walk into his room and he was able to give me a big smile and hold my hand."

Still, Kloots remains positive about Cordero's recovery, telling fans that "instead of feeling defeated, I turn to feeling determined!"

"I give him any and all energy I can. I tell him goals that the doctors would like to see. I insist that he CAN do this!" she wrote. "People may look at me like I’m crazy. They may think that I don’t fully understand his condition because I’m smiling and singing in his room everyday. I’m just not going to mope around and feel sad for myself or him."

"That is not what Nick would want me to do. That is not my personality," she added. "I fight and I will continue to fight for Nick every single day. With God on our side anything can happen!"

Cordero was first admitted to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in late March for what was initially believed to be pneumonia. He was then diagnosed with COVID-19 and has since experienced a number of complications, including lung infections and septic shock.

Amid Cordero's hospitalization, the actor also had his right leg amputated and received a temporary pacemaker for his heart.

A GoFundMe page has been created in support of Cordero's family and to raise funds for his medical bills.
