‘It is exactly what we need. Small improvements are small wins that equal a VICTORY!’ she added. ‘Thanks be to God.’
The positive update comes after Amanda revealed on Thursday that Nick’s progress had taken a ‘step forward’ after saying that he had been going ‘downhill’ earlier this week.
‘I am happy to say that it looks like we’re on a step forward again,’ Amanda said.
Nick had woken up from his six-week medically-induced coma last week, but then earlier this week Amanda shared he’d had a ‘bad morning’ which had set him back.

‘So one of the things that I have learned about this whole process is that the land of the ICU is one step forward, two steps back,’ the fitness trainer told her followers.
‘And that’s kind of what happened to us in these last couple 24 hours.’
She added: ‘Wow. It’s been another roller coaster, but this one goes out to the doctors and nurses at Cedars-Sinai, the power of prayer and the power of energy and support. And positivity is, I’m sorry, in my opinion, insurmountable.’

But Amanda made it clear that her husband Nick is still ‘fighting’ and that he is not ‘done’ with battling the virus.
‘We have been singing and dancing and lifting him up in only positive thoughts and words and deeds. And guys, it’s making a difference. He’s not done. He’s not done.’
Amanda married Nick in 2017 and the couple share son Elvis, who will be celebrating his first birthday next month.

Nick has been through a horrific ordeal in the hospital.
He’s had to have one of his legs amputated, his lungs have been severely damaged by the coronavirus and he suffered multiple mini-strokes, all of which might delay his recovery.
Nick, who was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in the 2014 in the musical Bullets Over Broadway, first went to the ER on March 30 with a COVID-19 diagnosis, and was subsequently put into a medically-induced coma and ventilator.

Throughout it all, Amanda has been updating fans on his progress on social media, sparking the #wakeupnick hashtag and inspiring even Sylvester Stallone to share an uplifting message for Nick.
The fitness trainer was hopeful for her husband’s future after he woke up from coma last week.
Speaking with Good Morning America last week, Amanda said doctors had told her the first step in his recovery was a sign of his mental response.
‘They always end [our conversations] 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,’ she explained.
Throwback: Late on Friday, Amanda shared a throwback of Nick and their son Elvis, ‘I would always find them like this. There’s nothing like a baby sleeping on your chest he would say,’ she wrote
