Amanda Kloots Reveals Why She Documented Nick Cordero's Coronavirus Battle

If you remember, Amanda Kloots documented her husband Nick Cordero‘s over 90 day hospital battle with Coronavirus before his tragic death on July 5.

She’s now explaining why she provided so many updates on his time in the hospital, including his leg needing to be amputated and how he wasn’t a candidate for a lung transplant later on in his stay.

Nick was sick and in our home for a good week, and I wasn’t saying anything,” Amanda told the New York Times. “And then when he went into the hospital, I thought it was important to share: My husband, who is 41 and has no pre-existing conditions, is now in the ICU after just being tired. Also, my business was online, and I was trying to make money for our family, and I thought if I don’t go public, I’ll be living a lie.”

“He was getting better,” Amanda added about his final days. “They were almost going to take him off the vent. And then he got a terrible infection in his lungs and his fever spiked, his blood pressure dropped, his heart stopped and he died for two minutes, and that was the start of the spiral down. It just felt like he could never catch a break.”

“But it was a different time, and Nick just got trapped,” she added. “I think it would be different if he went to the hospital now.”

Our continued thoughts are with Amanda and their one-year-old son Elvis.
