Article Pixel

Nick Cordero is currently in the ICU, with what was thought to be pneumonia, but may be COVID-19.

His wife, Amanda Kloots took to Instagram to share information about her husband's condition:

My sweet husband needs your prayers please. Nick has been sick for awhile with what we were told last week was pneumonia. Unfortunately we think he was misdiagnosed and we are waiting to hear if this is in fact COVID. He is scared, in the ICU and now unconscious so his body can get enough oxygen. We are all trying to stay positive and strong knowing that he is in the best care. I miss him terribly. I'm not allowed there to visit of course and can do nothing to help him. Nick is scared too, this has gone from bad to worse. He isn't allowed to eat or drink, he is very weak and having a hard time breathing. Elvis and I are feeling completely fine. My hubby is fighting like a champ but this is serious. Please stay home everybody. Thank you to everyone who has been helping us so far you know who are and you are all angels. ??
