Lamar Odom reportedly got out of bed for the first time since being hospitalized last Tuesday when he was found unresponsive at a Nevada brothel.
Odom first opened his eyes on Friday after being comatose for four days. He allegedly woke up and told his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, “Hey Babe.” While he is reportedly able to text and speak sentences, he mostly communicates using thumbs-up and thumbs-down motions.
The former NBA star is able to breathe on his own. He passed a “swallow test,” which helps doctors gauge the extent of his brain damage, if any.
TMZ reports, Lamar’s recovery will be months long, including work with therapists with Khloe by his side.
Kim Kardashian posted a touching message on Instagram about making Lamar laugh.
Lamar has a long, tough road to recovery in front of him but he can absolutely do with the help of his loved ones. We’re rooting for him!
