His wife, Amanda Kloots, revealed on Instagram Stories on Thursday (April 23) that his loved ones are playing the “waiting game” waiting for him to wake up from a medically induced coma.

After his leg was amputated, he underwent an MRI on his brain and spine to assess recovery.

“The doctors said that there was nothing on the MRI that would show that he won’t wake up, which is amazing news. We are so happy about that because that was a big worry for all of us,” she said.

“However, he hasn’t woken up and it’s been 12 days out of sedation. The doctors do think he should have woken up by now.”

Since he was “heavily sedated” for 13 days before, she said she is “hoping and praying every day that Nick wakes up.”

“In putting that energy and positivity out there, because I do believe he will. He is on Nick time and when he wakes up, we’ll all be there to celebrate it,” she went on to say.

“As we are waiting for him to wake up, while he is still sleeping, they are slowly weaning off his body off assistance, which is just great news. Small little wins.”

Earlier in the week, Amanda said that Nick may never walk again. We are happy to hear the surgery went well and are sending our best thoughts for his recovery.
