Amanda looked less ebullient in her Insta Stories update than in previous videos, though her mood had markedly improved since delivering the news that her husband’s condition had worsened.

‘It’s been a tough week,’ she began. ‘Nick suffered from some new lung infections in his lungs earlier this week, and since then he’s been slowly recovering, which is great.’

‘Day by day, hour by hour, he’s getting better. So he is slowly getting back to where he was before this infection came about. And that’s good,’ she continued.

‘We’re just hoping he can come off some more medications and that his settings on the machines can come down.

‘Right now, we’re just looking for slow, small, steady wins to keep him rested and recovering,’ she added.

She didn’t hold anything back when it came to her own mental state as her husband fought for his life in the hospital.

‘I’m exhausted, as you can tell. Physically and mentally and emotionally exhausted,’ she admitted. ‘This has been the craziest ride ever, but we’re still here, and we’re still fighting.’

Amanda concluded her short update with a call to her and Nick’s fans to keep their loved ones close as the coronavirus pandemic rages on.

‘These are times right now,’ she said. ‘If you have somebody going through it, hug your people. Don’t take a day for granted, guys.’

Earlier this month, Nick began to wake up from his medically induced coma and show signs of more cognitive activity, though his infection has slowed the process of returning to full consciousness.

The singer and actor has been through a horrific ordeal while in the hospital. 

He’s had to have one of his legs amputated, his lungs have been severely damaged by the coronavirus and he suffered multiple mini-strokes, all of which might delay his recovery.

Nick, who was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in the 2014 in the musical Bullets Over Broadway, first went to the ER on March 30 with a COVID-19 diagnosis, and was subsequently put into a medically-induced coma and ventilator
