She told her fans: “He is on the trach! They did it, and he’s OK, and he is free of the ventilator.”
“Thank God. We have been trying to do this for Nick for so many weeks now, and it just kept getting stalled and pushed back because of his health.”
“And now, he was finally healthy enough today to get the trach and the ventilator is out, his face is clear of all those tubes.”

“This is a lot more comfortable for Nick, I think he will be feeling, even subconsciously, feeling better, and I hope this is a great sign for some good recovery days ahead.
“And for him to be able to wake up and just have that pressure relieved from his throat.”
