“He is awake,” she said. “We did it.”
A viral hashtag campaign, #WakeUpNick, had sprung up on social media to support Cordero as he recovered.
Kloots has been posting about her Tony-nominated actor husband who she has said is hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Cordero was up for a Tony in 2014 for his role in “Bullets Over Broadway.”
On Tuesday Kloots posted that her husband is very weak, but making progress.
“Even closing his eyes, takes it out of him,” she said. “They’re waiting for him to regain strength, of course, time and recovery will help with that and then eventually PT will help him get stronger.”
“However, we did learn that due to COVID Nick’s lungs are severely damaged,” she said. “To look almost like he’s been a smoker for 50 years they said. They are that damaged.”
Cordero was initially hospitalized in March.
