(CNN/Gray News) – Broadway star Nick Cordero has suffered a setback in his long recovery from COVID-19.

His wife Amanda Kloots said his health was going “downhill” during a tearful Instagram Live update on Wednesday.

In a separate post, she asked for appeals to heaven.

“Mega prayers for this special man right now,” Kloots said. “God continue to grant miracles.”

The 41-year old Cordero has battled a series of coronavirus-related complications since he was hospitalized in March.

He spent weeks on a ventilator, suffered septic shock, mini-strokes, and had to have a leg amputated.

Cordero woke up from his medically induced coma earlier this month and is still fighting a lung infection.

On Thursday, Kloots struck a more optimistic tone about her husband’s battle in another Instagram post.

“When things look down, we look UP!” Kloots said. “I have my masters in OPTIMISM!”
