‘He interacts with his eyes, answering questions by looking up for yes and down for no,’ wrote the former Broadway dancer. 

She then added, ‘When he is alert he can also move his jaw.’

‘I have been doing passive physical therapy on him to help in any way I can to get him stronger, to keep his joints moving and engage his muscles. He cannot move his body yet,’ Kloots continued.

‘He has had some minor blood infections that are causing little blood pressure issues although those are under control. His vent settings are getting better and his numbers are trending in a better direction. He is relatively stable.’

The mom-of-one then spoke about how she remains positive, writing, ‘Is this defeating? Sometimes it is, I won’t lie. I wish I would walk into his room and he was able to give me a big smile and hold my hand.’ 

‘But instead of feeling defeated, I turn to feeling determined! I give him any and all energy I can. I tell him goals that the doctors would like to see. I insist that he CAN do this!’ 

‘People may look at me like I’m crazy. They may think that I don’t fully understand his condition because I’m smiling and singing in his room everyday.’

‘I’m just not going to mope around and feel sad for myself or him. That is not would Nick would want me to to do. That is not my personality.
