Ex-NBA player and ex-Khloe Kardashian husband Lamar Odom is showing definite signs of improvement, according to various sources. TMZ is reporting that Lamar is experiencing “the best 24 hours he has had so far.” We can all agree that this is due to most of the Kardashians leaving the hospital, right? Who needs Lourdes (the town with the magical God fountain in France, not Madge’s daughter) when all you need is that fame whore trash taken out of your hospital room?
As you know, Odom was in a coma for four days after he was found knocked out at a brothel just outside of Pahrump, NV in Crystal. He’s recovering at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
Lamar is reportedly off his ventilator and breathing on his own, but using an oxygen mask. E! says that he passed a swallow test, which is important because, well, swallowing. As for communication, People disagrees with E! reporting that Lamar talked and said, “Hey baby,“ to Khloe. I knew that part stank of Kardashian.
“Lamar today again has had moments when he is awake and more responsive,” the source says. “He is still in the ICU, is receiving oxygen and sleeps a lot. He is not talking, but seems to understand when Khloé and the medical staff speak to him. He will have another head MRI in the next few days to check for any damage that could have been caused by the strokes.
The Los Angeles Times, however, says that Lamar is talking and texting. Their source says that he’s “doing good.”
On the down side, Lamar may have experienced kidney failure, according to E!. Doctors are also checking to see if he suffered any brain damage from the strokes he had. Yikes. Khloe is said to be constantly by his side, and sleeping on a cot next to his bed.
“Khloé still hasn’t left his side and looks very tired,” the source adds. “As soon as Lamar wakes up, she rushes over to hold his hand. She sleeps on a pullout bed next to Lamar.”
I think we’d all be a little tired. Jeez, cut a Sasquatch some slack, “source.”
And now let’s roll our eyes at Kim Kardashian’s latest Instagram post wishing “Lammy” the best.
Um, God would like you to keep him off of your Instagram, Kummy. Also, the man has been through a lot. He probably didn’t know who that blurry form taking selfies with him was. He smiled because he was in a clean hospital room and breathing. The last thing he probably saw pre-coma was glimpses of a sweaty and grunting Dennis Hof ALLEGEDLY going through his backpack and ALLEGEDLY “cleaning” up the room real quickly.
Here’s pics of Kim, Kendall and Khloe’s friend Malika Haqq leaving Sunrise Hospital in Vegas.
