This weekend, Kloots said she had an emotional day after her sister, who was visiting from Paris, went home and she then visited Cordero in the hospital. "Nick is doing OK, it's just that he's in this vicious ICU dance circle where one thing goes right and then another thing goes wrong and that thing that was wrong goes right but then the thing that was right goes wrong," Kloots said on her Instagram stories. "To me, right now it's just like, how do we get out of this vicious circle, this circle of the ICU?"
Cordero, a Tony nominee, has been battling the coronavirus for almost 90 days. "There's still carbon dioxide level problems. He's still acidotic, and there's still blood pressure issues," Kloots said of her 41-year-old husband. "So, we kind of really need those things to get sorted in order to move forward. So I'm hoping and I'm keeping the faith that this week those things happen and we see some sort of advancement. So please keep Nick in your prayers."
