Former LA Lakers basketballer and Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom is breathing on his own and has even been helped out of bed.
Lamar was hospitalised in Las Vegas last Tuesday night. He had been found unconscious at a brothel, after a reported drug and alcohol binge.
Lamar, 35, reportedly came out of his coma on Friday morning. Khloe, 31, was by his bedside.
Since then he has been helped out of his bed into a chair. According to E! News, he is now able to swallow on his own. He can also breathe on his own, but is wearing a mask to help the flow of oxygen. He is still in intensive care.
He’s trying to talk, but is communicating mainly with hand signals.
Although it looks like Lamar will survive, he may not recover fully. Before being admitted to hospital, it’s believed he suffered at least one stroke, as well as kidney failure. Doctors still aren’t sure how much brain damage he’s sustained.
Get well soon, Lamar!
