Visitor pass: On Friday, Amanda shared that she was going to visit her husband Nick in the ICU after spending almost 79 days apart
Dedication: The fitness instructor also shared this picture of Cedars-Sinai where Nick has been in an ICU for the past 79 days
Yesterday, Amanda revealed that Nick has lost 65lbs during COVID-19 battle and can only answer questions with his eyes because he’s too ‘weak’ to move or speak.
‘He still can’t move and his muscles are definitely atrophying,’ Amanda said during an Instagram Live Q&A session on Wednesday.
‘What’s so heartbreaking is he’s so weak,’ said the former Broadway dancer in the candid chat.

‘He can’t speak unfortunately. He can’t really even move, you guys. That’s how weak he is,’ added Amanda.
‘He looks up, he looks down, he looks left and right. And he answers questions, yes and no questions. A yes is looking up and no looks down.’
She said she’s also spoken to Nick about his amputated leg, which was lost due to blood clots, but isn’t sure the Bullets Over Broadway star understands the appendage is gone.
‘I have told him about his leg, and I’ve told him about the amazing prosthetics that are available now, and I told him that he’s gonna be fine.’
But, she admitted, ‘It is hard when I’m talking to Nick to understand exactly what he’s understanding.’
Thoughts and prayers: Kloots wrote Wednesday on her Instagram story: ‘Prayers for Nick. Please pray that Nick’s blood pressure gets better’ (pictured in August, 2019 with their son Elvis)
She also disclosed that despite Nick’s improvements, the road to recovery will be a long one.
‘After Nick gets out of the hospital, ’cause he is getting out of this hospital, he would go to a rehab center and probably be at a rehab center for a year before even coming home,’ said Amanda.
The entrepreneur has been keeping a brave face for her 326,000 Instagram followers as Nick recovers from coronavirus complications.
The couple most recently faced another obstacle, as she revealed that he’s not a candidate for a lung transplant.
Amanda wrote Wednesday on her Instagram story: ‘Prayers for Nick. Please pray that Nick’s blood pressure gets better.
Goal surpassed: A GoFundMe page created to raise funds for Cordero’s medical bills has raised more than $564,000 as of Friday after beginning with a $480,000 goal (pictured in January, 2020)
