Elvis said his first words today!! Listen closely! He pointed at Nick in our new picture light and said “right there.” He hasn’t seen Nick since March 30th. The fact that he still knows who his Dada is, point to him and give him a kiss to me is amazing.
This past week, Amanda also talked about her new life and her “new normal” without Nick. She explained at the time how she and Nick had just purchased a house together to move into. It was a real challenge to get used to Nick not being there, Amanda explained.
According to multiple reports, Nick and Amanda were getting ready to move from New York City to Los Angeles, however, Nick got sick from the coronavirus. He died earlier this month on the 5th of July while at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Nick had been in the ICU for ninety days where he was fighting against complications from the virus. Followers of the case know Nick’s battle was especially difficult. He endured septic shock and had to have his right leg taken off. Doctors had Nick on anti-blood clotting medication which led to additional complications.
Doctors even had to put him on a temporary pacemaker so his heart would continue beating. And to pay the hospital bills, Amanda had created a GoFundMe page.
While many people have died from the coronavirus, Amanda was very vocal about it on her social media, leading to a cascade of support and positive messages from fans and spectators.
