The Broadway star’s wife, Amanda Kloots, says he is “doing slightly better” but is still facing challenges.
“He is still very sick and battling a lot,” she wrote on her Instagram story. “They turned him to a proning position today to open his airways. He has had this before and it helped a lot.”
Kloots said doctors also cleaned out the 41-year-old’s lungs to help fight infection. She also noted that Cordero is still testing negative for COVID-19.
“What he is and has been dealing with is the fail [sic] out from the virus and from infections that arise from being in the ICU as long as he has,” she wrote.
Cordero first became sick at the end of March and was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with what he believed was a severe case of pneumonia. After being diagnosed with coronavirus, he was placed on a ventilator.
He ultimately had to have his right leg amputated, suffered two mini-strokes and a septic infection, battled fungus in his lungs and was given a temporary pacemaker for his heart.
