Lamar Odom continues his road to recovery! The former NBA star has finally been released from the hospital this weekend. Lamar has been hospitalized for the past three months after being found unconscious due to a drug overdose at a Las Vegas brothel.
Sources say that Lamar isn’t back to himself just yet. He will be receiving therapy daily at a local rehab facility. TMZ says he’ll working on basics like walking, talking, reading and writing.
In what seems to be a bit of a miracle twist, Lamar Odom seems to be experiencing a turnaround in his health. Lamar was hospitalized on Tuesday after a coke and herbal Viagra bender at a brothel in Nevada. The former NBA star is now awake from his coma after four days and is breathing on his own.
New reports out this afternoon claim that Lamar woke up long enough to smile at soon-to-be ex-wife Khloe Kardashian and say “hey baby” to her before falling to sleep. Lamar is also now rumored to be breathing on his own and his heart is showing signs of being on the mend, as well. That’s pretty great news for a guy whose survival seemed bleak just yesterday, with multiple organ failure.
Color us wrong. Earlier I said that the Kardashians weren’t technically Lamar Odom’sfamily any longer, but it turns out they are, legally anyway. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar are still very much married, sort of – at least for a few more months. And it has changed things a bit as far as Lamar’s medical decisions since Khloe is in charge.
TMZ claims that even though Lamar and Khloe finally signed their divorce papers back in July (despite initially filing back in December 2013), the divorce still isn’t official because of a backlog in cases. So technically they are still married and Khloe swooped in to make medical decisions for Lamar while he’s in a coma and unable to make his own.
