‘So we are on day 18 of Nick being sedated in the ICU. It is April 18. We got some difficult news yesterday,’ she began.

‘Basically we’ve had issues in his right leg with clotting and getting blood down to his toes and it just isn’t happening with surgery and everything,’ Amanda shared.

‘So they had him on blood thinners for the clotting and unfortunately the blood thinners were causing some other issues – blood pressure and some internal bleeding in his intestines,’ she said.

‘So we took him off the blood thinners but that again was gonna cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today.’

As the day wore on she shared ‘A PLEAD…’ on her Insta Stories, writing: ‘I KNOW THIS ISN’T POSSIBLE BUT TODAY IS MIRACLE DAY SO WHY NOT ASK?’

The fitness trainer wrote: ‘I just wish I could see him. Hold his hand. Touch his face. I do believe this would help him WAKE UP!’

Amanda’s latest update comes just two days after she revealed that her husband may never walk again.

She took to her Instagram Story on Thursday as she said Nick had surgery to remove the ECMO machine that he was on and it went well.

She explained: ‘The doctor said for Nick’s heart and lungs right now they’re in the best condition that they could be. The fact that he’s off (the ECMO machine) is great.’

However it wasn’t all great news as she said: ‘His right leg is still an issue. here has been some blood flow issues coming down to his foot.’

There could be a long road of recovery ahead for the Broadway actor.

Kloots said: ‘We don’t know if he’ll be able to walk again. We don’t know if he can walk again — what that’ll look like.

‘I think that there will definitely be a lot of rehab and definitely physio in order for that leg to get working again. But the good news is that blood is finally running down to his toes.’

 Just a day prior, Kloots had ‘really, really good news,’ the fitness trainer said Nick’s ‘heart and lungs are getting stronger.’

The turn for the better comes after Nick had to be resuscitated on Saturday after undergoing emergency surgery to alleviate a blockage of blood flow to his leg.

‘They’re weaning him off the ECMO machine,’ continued Amanda, referring to the apparatus which helps support the heart and lungs. 

She then said that if all went according to plan, doctors would be able to remove the ECMO machine on Thursday, allowing Nick’s heart and lungs to operate on their own.

‘Big win,’ exclaimed the mother-of-one. 

However, ‘we still need him to wake up,’ continued Amanda, imploring fans to sing and dance for Nick at 3pm PST.

The viral movement even swept up model Devon Windsor, who posted a video of her performance in honor of Nick on Tuesday.

Amanda then recalled a romantic story from when they started dating in 2014 about how the Canadian 41-year-old secretly mastered jumping rope in her honor while he was visiting his sick father in Ontario.

‘He told me, “When I was taking care of my dad, I would go to the gym every morning and I taught myself to jump rope so I could win you back,”‘ Kloots smiled.

‘I love this story, obviously because it’s about jumping rope, but just a cute story to give you a little insight into what a special guy he is and who he is and the kind of heart he has.’

Nick is on a ventilator, a dialysis machine, and he had to be resuscitated on Saturday after undergoing emergency surgery to alleviate a blockage of blood flow to his leg.
