Nick Cordero is finally showing signs that he might wake up in the coming days.

Though there have been numerous setbacks in his recovery from the coronavirus, his wife, Amanda Kloots, has revealed he's showing major progress and may wake up in the near future. She said in her latest Instagram update that the doctor called on Wednesday to inform her Nick is showing very early stages of tracking, "which means he's starting to wake up."

She said this is "huge," because while Nick was already opening his eyes "nothing's been behind it."

"Now he's slowly starting to show signs," she explained. "Again, these are early early early signs, and super super small movements that not only one nurse saw but a couple." This new development gives her and the doctor "some hope."

The fitness guru added that she hopes he will be awake by Mother's Day. Amanda shared, "Maybe he'll wake up for me and for his mom. What a gift!"

Even if Nick doesn't wake up by then, she stated this is still "wonderful news to hear."

"[I'm] feeling a little bit of relief here," Amanda said as she held back tears.


News of his improvement comes less than 48 hours after he endured a "rocky night" in the hospital. According to Amanda, doctors had to go into his lungs on Monday night to perform some "long scraping" to remove an infection. After all signs of infection were removed, the doctors said all there was left to do was wait and see if he would pull through. 

While Amanda waits on Nick, she's been making sure their home is handicap accessible as doctors had to amputate his leg. In addition, she's preparing for their son Elvis' first birthday in June, which she hopes to celebrate with Nick by her side as they did when he was born a year ago.
