Lamar Odom Reportedly Making Progress in Hospital Bed
Despite being found unconscious and barely breathing in a brothel room last week, Lamar Odom is defying the odds and making progress slowly but surely.
Though he remains hospitalized, his friends and family members are now coming forward and publicly announcing that he is responsive and has even begun speaking.
His former NBA coach Jim Harrick recently told CNN that Lamar is breathing on his own and even told his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian “I love you.”
Lamar’s aunt JaNean Mercer has also come forward to Entertainment Tonight describing her nephew as a “fighting spirit” who is beating the odds and making progress.
"Lamar has always been blessed with a tenacious, fighting spirit, overcoming insurmountable obstacles to achieve the impossible," JaNean said. "These past few days have been no different. He is defying the odds in his toughest battle to date with God's grace.”
She continued, "Each day Lamar is getting stronger and reaching significant milestones in his recovery. We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion, who we love immensely.”
Khloe Kardashian remains by Lamar’s bedside and has yet to speak publicly about her estranged husband’s status.
Reports say that Khloe is naturally distraught and is focused on making the proper medical decisions for Lamar.
Despite her silence, her family members have gone to Instagramto post encouraging messages about Lamar’s health status.
Because he is making remarkable progress, Lamar will reportedly be transferred from his Las Vegas Hospital to a local Los Angeles hospital.
He can reportedly move his arms and legs, but needs assistance to walk. He is also on dialysis due to kidney failure.
Our prayers continue to go out to Lamar and his loved one at this time.
