Nick Cordero has been in the hospital for a month, fighting for his life as he struggles with the coronavirus. 

On Friday, the same day he marked one month in the hospital, his wife also revealed he successfully had a tracheostomy, that will go on to help ween him from mechanical ventilation.

Amanda Kloots was elated to share the update as she took to her Instagram stories to share news with fans and supporters.

'He is on the trach,' she shouted with a big smile on her face. 'They did it! And he's okay and he's free of the ventilator, thank God.'

Adding this was a step they had hoped to make for the Broadway star, for weeks. Saying: 'We have been trying to do this for Nick for so many weeks now, and it just kept getting stalled and pushed back because of his health.' 

'And now, he was finally healthy enough today to get the trach and the ventilator is out,' she said. 'His face is clear of all of those tubes.'

The tracheostomy procedure, or trach, cuts a hole in his neck at his trachea, to change the location of tubes for ventilation from his nose and mouth directly to his airway.

'This is just amazing news guys because we really needed this to happen to get him off that ventilator, this is a lot more comfortable for Nick,' Amanda said as she spoke to the camera. 

Adding: 'I think he'll be feeling better, even subconsciously feeling better. I think this is a great sign for some good recovery days ahead and for him to be able to wake up and have that pressure relieved from his throat. Trach is in, woohoo.' 

The news came after Amanda took the couple's son Elvis to the beach that she said was 'much needed.' 

Earlier in the day, Amanda wrote: 'It's May 1. Nick was induced and put on a ventilator in the ICU on April 1. New month, same goal! YOU CAN DO IT BABY! Also, our neighbors are awesome. #wakeupnick.'

It came as he was set to undergo a tracheostomy, to put a breathing tube directly into his throat and remove him from the ventilator. 

The surgery was planned for Friday afternoon, with Amanda asking followers to pray for Nick and explaining: 'that will hopefully make everything more comfortable for him and get all of that stuff off of his face.'

The fitness instructor also shared a photograph of a banner posted by the couple's neighbors in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, which read 'Wake Up Nick'.

The hashtag is one popularized by Amanda, with multiple friends and fans posting to social media as they dance daily in honor of the Broadway star, who remains in intensive care.
