The NBA star was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday and was hospitalized in a coma for almost three days. Odom woke up on Friday and has since shown signs of improvement although doctors are still concerned about his health.
“Lamar is slowly making progress. Today has been a good day,” a source said on Sunday, adding, “There’s a lot of praying going on.”
Since emerging from the coma, reports say he has briefly spoken to Khloe Kardashian, who has been by his side since the day he was admitted, saying, “Hey baby” and “Good morning”. Lamar has also been taken off life support and is now breathing on his own without a ventilator. Unfortunately due to kidney failure, the 35 year old remains on dialysis and is still undergoing test to determine the extent of possible brain damage or other long term effects.
Throughout the passed week team mates, friends and many celebrities have used social media to wish the NBA star a speedy recovery and prayers have been sent his way. Sources have said that the Kardashians have since returned to Vegas to join Khloe by Lamar’s side now that he is able to communicate and is on the road to recovery. There is still a long way to go before Odom is in the clear and we hope he is able to fully recover from this very scary event.
