They always end it with we just need that mental status, we need to wake him up, we need him to wake up, and it’s just been this heaviness that’s kind of held over us for this time and to get the news today that he is, you know the doctor said,

I think we can officially say he is awake and that was just the best news your could hear. We still have a very long way ahead of us, a long road ahead of us but we are on our way.”

Kloots told Strahan that they first saw signs that Cordero was improving on Mother’s Day.

"For the first time he started following commands, which was a huge deal. Basically, if he answers a question with a yes he looks up and a no he looks down. To finally hear the doctor say we are seeing these early, early signs but I think it’s happening was a huge sigh of relief."

Strahan said Cordero had strokes, sepsis, damaged lungs and blood clots that resulted in a leg amputation.

Kloots has been visiting him daily outside his hospital window and goes live on Instagram to sing Cordero’s song, “Live Your Life.”

Kloots told Strahan that once Cordero gets home, “I am not going to let him leave my side. I can’t wait to be reunited with him. I miss him like crazy, Elvis misses him like crazy, and we can’t wait to have him home.”

Elvis is the couple’s 11-month-old son.
