On Saturday, Nick Cordero was dealing with blood clots while on a ventilator due to Covid-19.

While in hospital, Nick started to have clotting in his right leg, with blood unable to get down to his toes.

"They're taking him back to the room to recover and rest, so hopefully he'll just kind of relax and rest".

Over the weekend, Cordero was taken from the intensive care unit and into surgery after blood thinners failed to help the clotting in his right leg as he lay in a coma. Nick originated the role of Earl in Sara Bareilles' hit musical Waitress before leaving the show to join the original Broadway cast of A Bronx Tale, in which he played Sonny. "I've been talking to the nurses and doctor and they've been wonderful".

He unveiled the tentative plan for the future as the state's coronavirus statistics continued to trend in the right direction. But he says without federal control of national and worldwide supply chains for materials, testing will remind a "quagmire".

As it was previously reported, Nick entered the ICU at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA on the 31st of March.

Speaking with Today, Amanda Kloots talked about the hard decision she had to make, though really there was little choice involved.

"They put the ECMO machine in him to save his life", Kloots said.

Amanda has continued to update her followers throughout the ordeal, while also documenting life with the couple's 10-month-old son, Elvis. He didn't lose a lot of blood. In a separate Instagram story, Amanda also shared the "really, really good news" that her husband's "heart and lungs are getting stronger". 'People I don't even know all over the world are joining me every day at 3 p.m.to sing his song so he can hear us'. "He does things for me without knowing", she posted. She said Saturday on Instagram that blood thinners helped curb clotting in his leg, but worsened his blood pressure and caused bleeding in his intestines. Nick was a nominee in the "Best Actor in a Musical" category at the 2014 Tony Awards for his work in Bullets Over Broadway.
