"So we just need them to connect to something".

In another Instagram Story, Kloots said she "thought of another Nick story to tell" fans and followers watching.

Kloots said last week that Cordero's lungs have been "severely damaged" by COVID-19 and look as if the actor was a smoker for 50 years.

"This was found because his oxygen count went down and they went deep down into his lungs", Kloots added.

Cordero - who starred in Rock of Ages and Waitress and was nominated for a Tony for his role in Bullets Over Broadway - has been in the intensive care unit since late March. He's 41, and he's been fighting.

"The doctor told me that if Nick was in his seventies, we'd be having a different conversation. We know. He's literally been thrown every curve ball that he could be thrown".

"Kloots also opened up about the hardest parts of her husband's battle with coronavirus." data-reactid="35" type="text" In April, Kloots also opened up about the hardest parts of her husband's battle with coronavirus. "I'm not giving up hope".

After having had a sigh of relief, she posted pictures of herself and her 10-month-old son Elvis relaxing at the beach.

Due to complications from coronavirus, Cordero also underwent an emergency amputation procedure to prevent blood clotting in is right leg.

On Monday evening, the 38-year-old wife of Broadway star Nick Cordero added a poignant still image to her Instagram Story, which saw her dressed in a dark bulky shirt, staring wistfully up at the camera in a selfie.

Kloots' updates about her husband's health have become a daily occurrence on social media. She has started the hashtag #WakeUpNick and often shares videos of well-wishers across the globe who post inspiring videos and photos in hopes that he will wake from his coma.

"Hey everybody, just a quick Nick update, we had kind of a bit of a rough day yesterday".

"It serves me no objective just to sit and worry and go down a hole, so I'm not", she said.

A GoFundMe account recently set up by friends to help Kloots and Cordero cover medical bills and make their new home in Los Angeles wheelchair-accessible has raised over $400,000.
