NICK Cordero's wife says his eyes are "opening up" after his month-long coma.
Amanda said his doctors say Nick is showing "good progress" in his coronavirus battle.
Amanda updated followers on Instagram saying; "The doctors say Nick is looking good.
"His settings on everything are getting better, so he says that there's good progress."
"And now we just need him to wake up."
She said as his eyes are now opening up again, the next step is for them to to follow commands.
Amanda shared: "His eyes are opening up, but they're not connected to anything right now.
"So we just need them to connect to something."
Amanda's also been advised from others who have gone through similar coronavirus recoveries.
She said "One of the things they said is that the first step is that the eyes open.
The second step is that the eyeballs sort of track [movement].
"We are at eyes open, which is great. We just need, like, the mental status to kick in."
Nick seems to be taking a turn for the better since having a tracheostomy procedure over the weekend. Amanda said on Instagram yesterday: "He is doing okay.
"His [ventilator] settings are down, which is good.
"That’s a really great sign that his breathing is going well."
The mom to 10-month-old Elvis went on: “He’s doing well so I’m just hoping for another day of rest and recovery for Nick.
"I think the more days he has of this might help his brain to wake up.”
In another post Amanda shared how she's been keeping her spirits up writing: "I now just wear all of Nick's clothes."
She also thanked famous friends Sarah Michelle Gellar and her husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. for sending over a sushi platter for dinner.
She posed with her twin sister Anna, writing over the snap, "Thank you so much!! You guys are the best!"
When Nick and Amanda moved to Los Angeles last year, they stayed in his best friend Zach Braff's guest house while house hunting.
Zach told The Hollywood Reporter: "They fell in love with L.A. So, they went home to pack up their things and he got COVID-19 when they did that, and he has it worse than anyone I've heard of who hasn't passed away."
Nick has been fighting the coronavirus in the ICU since late March.
The Tony Award-nominated actor for Bullets over Broadway suffered complications from the illness including an infection in his lungs.
Doctors also had to amputate his right leg because of blood clots.
