Nick Cordero’s wife says his white blood cell count is ‘way down’ which is a ‘good sign’ after she was told say goodbye – The Sun

NICK Cordero’s wife says his white blood cell count is ‘way down’ which is a ‘good sign.’

Her new outlook comes after doctors told her to say goodbye last week.

Amanda told followers over Instagram: "This weekend was a good weekend. It was uneventful, which, uneventful in the ICU is a good weekend.

"I think he had a weekend of rest, a weekend of growing, strength in his body and recovering a little."

She also relayed Nick's white blood cell count has dropped.

Amanda explained: "It has been as high as 65,000, we are now at 30,000.

"A frame of reference, a normal, healthy person is around 15,000 to 20,000."

She added this is a "great sign that things are moving in the right direction."

Nick has been in the ICU battling coronavirus since late March.

He and Amanda share an 11-month-old son, Elvis Eduardo.

The actor suffered complications from the disease which forced doctors to amputate his right leg because of blood clots.

Amanda concluded her update saying: "I don't know why, I just have a really good feeling about this week, so I'm just gonna keep praying for our miracles and keep praying for that healing."

Over the weekend Amanda shared "exciting news" doctors had started the Tony Award-nominee on a  stem cell treatment: "This could be really great, of course, there are absolutely no guarantees, there's hardly ever any guarantees."

Amanda went on: "But I'm just hoping that it can help him, even if it helps one percent right? Even if it just bridges us to the next level in healing for him.

"I'm super excited about it and I can't wait to see if anything comes of it to help repair, strengthen Nick's lungs and get him any better."

Last week Nick's prognosis was less positive.

Amanda shared: "I've been 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. Well, I have faith. Faith that is small as a mustard seed sometimes, but that is all you need sometimes."
