During an appearance on "CBS This Morning" Thursday, Kloots shared Cordero's latest health updates with Gayle King.
"Our ultimate goal is to get him to be a candidate for a double lung transplant," Kloots said, explaining to King that he may need the procedure. "We think that that is most likely the possibility, a 99% chance that he would be needing that."
She continued, "In order to live the kind of life that I know my husband would want to live, that is a long road away and a lot of things would have to line up for Nick to be a candidate for that."
Kloots said she remains positive and hopeful, despite having been told multiple times that Cordero wouldn't make it.
"They told me four times that he won't survive. Sometimes even he won't survive through he night, but he has," she said. "Don't get me wrong, I have my days, but I have to stay determined, I have to stay positive, I have to stay strong for my husband."
She continues, "He's fighting, I see it everyday... as long as he's in there and fighting, I'll continue to fight with him."
Kloots described some challenges of Cordero being in the hospital, now for more than 90 days, with complications from COVID-19 that led to multiple lung infections and his leg being amputated.
"There's so many cords everywhere," she said. "I just want to jump in the bed and hug him and grab him and squeeze him, but you have to be very careful with everything that's going on. So I grab his hand… and I'm waiting for the day he holds my hand back."
Aside from interviews, Kloots keeps her more than 354,000 Instagram followers well-informed on Cordero's health highs and lows and asks fans to keep her husband in their prayers.
