Nick Cordero's Wife Asks for Prayers as She Describes His Recovery Setbacks as a 'Vicious Circle'




"I give him any and all energy I can. I tell him goals that the doctors would like to see. I insist that he CAN do this!" she wrote. "People may look at me like I’m crazy. They may think that I don’t fully understand his condition because I’m smiling and singing in his room every day. I’m just not going to mope around and feel sad for myself or him. That is not what Nick would want me to do. That is not my personality. I fight and I will continue to fight for Nick every single day."

Cordero was first admitted to the hospital in late March for what was initially believed to be pneumonia. He was then diagnosed with COVID-19 and has since experienced a number of complications, including lung infections and septic shock.

Amid Cordero's hospitalization, the actor also had his right leg amputated and received a temporary pacemaker for his heart.

A GoFundMe page has been created to raise funds for his medical bills.
