Nick Cordero Had a 'Rocky Night' After He 'Spiked a Fever' amid His Recovery from CoronavirusJune 10, 2020
In an Instagram post, the mother of one also reflected on the "two Cordero men" in her life and shared photos of her husband visiting their son when the infant was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit shortly after his birth.
"When Elvis was born they rushed him right to the NICU because there was fluid in his lungs. He stayed there for two nights and Nick and I visited him all day. We couldn’t stop staring at him and eventually holding him," she wrote in the caption. "My two Cordero men: last June Elvis is in the NICU. This June Nick is in the ICU."
"These guys are really trying to take me down 😂," she added.

Cordero was first admitted to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in late March for what was initially believed to be pneumonia. He was then diagnosed with COVID-19, and has experienced lung infections, septic shock and other complications since.
Amid the Cordero's hospitalization, he also had his right leg amputated and received a temporary pacemaker for his heart.
Last week, Kloots shared her optimism for her husband's recovery, despite being told "a couple times that he won’t make it."
"I’ve been told to say goodbye. I’ve been told it would take a miracle," she wrote in the caption for a photo of Cordero giving Elvis a big kiss. "Well, I have faith."
"Faith that is small as a mustard seed sometimes, but that is all you need sometimes," Kloots continued. "He’s still here and despite his odds gets slightly, slightly better every day. Where there is faith, there is hope. Where there is hope, there can be a miracle! Like my dad has said since day one, every day he’s still with us is a miracle. I believe God is with us, with the doctors and with Nick."
A GoFundMe page has also been created to raise funds for Cordero's medical bills. As of Tuesday, it has raised $562,242 after beginning with a $480,000 goal.
