Lamar Odom Still Fighting For His Health In LA Hospital
While reports are largely rejoicing over Lamar’s miraculous recovery after his ill-fated bender in a Las Vegas brothel…a new report is claiming that his condition remains extremely serious. Despite the great strides he made in the last few days, the former baller still has a long road to travel, and wife Khloe has apparently been keeping his progress under wraps while she privately deals with his recovery. Via Us Weekly:
Lamar Odom still needs all the good vibes he can get. Despite recent improvements — his aunt said on Thursday, Oct. 22, that he’s begun to “flourish both mentally and physically” — a source tells Us Weekly that there are a lot of unknown variables in the former NBA star’s recovery.
“Lamar is not out of the woods,” the source shares. “I think it’s still really touch-and-go. Khloe [Kardashian] is not really responding to friends who’ve reached out; I think she’s just in a bubble with her family right now.”
Indeed, the insider says the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan has been affected by Odom’s scare. Several family members — including Kris, Kim, Kendall, Kylie, and Kourtney — visited the athlete, 35, in Las Vegas and asked for prayers from their millions of followers on social media.
“Khloe and her family have really proved how much they truly love Lamar,” the source tells Us. “They realize honestly that addiction is a disease, and they have been not only present but truly heartbroken over this whole tragic situation.”
SMH…apparently his recovery was greatly overblown and he still has quite a long road to travel. According to TMZ, Lamar needed two emergency surgeries on arrival and it’s been messing with his mental and emotional state:
Lamar Odom has undergone 2 emergency surgeries, and it has taken a toll on his mind … TMZ has learned. We’re told the procedures involved chest issues, but we do not know if it’s connected to his lungs or heart.
Our sources say the surgeries have put Lamar in “a fragile mental state.” We’re told he’s emotional and at times, very upset. We’re told doctors have locked the doors on all visitors except Khloe while Lamar deals with the immediate physical and mental issues.
Wow. Hopefully he can pull through and get back to his full health!
