At last! Lamar Odom is about to make his biggest stride yet in his recovery from a near fatal drug overdose. He’s reportedly about to move to a rehab facility after nearly two months in the hospital.
Talk about a miracle recovery, Lamar Odom, 36, is finally about to be discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he’s spent the last two months recovering from a devastating accidental drug overdose. We’re so thrilled he’s made enough progress to finally leave the hospital and continue his recovery at an L.A. live-in rehabilitation facility where he will get ongoing care and therapy.
The former NBA player star will move from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. to a local live-in rehabilitation center, a source tells People magazine.”The plan is for him to move in the next few days,” the insider adds. “At the center, Lamar will continue to receive amazing therapy. He still has many challenges but is making progress. He is a fighter!”
Lamar is still unable to walk without assistance and still has speech and cognitive impairment, having problems with memory and putting thoughts together. He’s also still dealing with kidney damage suffered following his Oct. 13 overdose at a Nevada brothel. At the time he was given a 50/50 chance of survival and spent days in a coma.
Estranged wife Khloe Kardashian hasn’t commented on the transfer, but she did tell TV critics at a Jan. 6 TCA panel for her new Kocktails With Khloe show that “He’s good,” but when pressed further she would only say, “It’s not my story to tell. I want him to tell that story. I’m proud of his strength and so grateful for everyone’s love and concern because I think it’s coming from a good place.”
