Nick Cordero's Wife Says He Started Stem Cell Treatment as She Shares Sweet Story of Special Date Night

"So fingers crossed," she concluded her update. "That's the new news."

Kloots, a fitness instructor, also shared a sweet post on Friday looking back on the couple's final date before welcoming their 11-month-old son Elvis.

"One year ago today was Elvis’s due date. We planned a dinner reservation at Del Friscos, our favorite restaurant in NYC," Kloots wrote in the caption alongside a series of photos from the night out. "We were advised to plan a big date night on the due date so we weren’t depressed if he didn’t come that day."

"We had such a lovely dinner, soaking in the last days of just us," she wrote, encouraging her pregnant followers to plan a similar experience for their own due dates. "Elvis was born 5 days later so I’m so glad we celebrated this night!"

On Wednesday, 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."

Cordero was first admitted to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in late March for what his family initially believed was pneumonia. He was then diagnosed with COVID-19, and has experienced lung infections, septic shock, and other complications since.

A GoFundMe page has been created to raise funds for Cordero's medical bills. As of Friday, it had raised more than $558,000 after beginning with a $480,000 goal.
