Lamar Odom may not be able to run yet, but give him time as he’s making huge strides in his recovery from a near fatal overdose. Lamar’s doctors are blown away by his ‘miraculous’ progress, as he’s walking around, remembering things and acting like his old self!
Somebody must be looking out for Lamar Odom, 36 — besides Khloe Kardashian, 31. The former Los Angeles Lakers star was unable to walk or speak after his drug overdose and coma, but now Lamar is talking up a storm while walking all over the place!
Lamar’s doctors are completely shocked by his recovery, according to TMZ. The NBA champion’s cognitive functions have significantly improved, as he’s now able to convey his thoughts while holding conversations. Lamar used to have problems recognizing people, but not anymore, as his recall is back.
This is such great news! Fans were given an update on Lamar’s road to recovery when Kim Kardashian, 35, took a picture of him going on a hike on Feb. 7. Wow! Now, he’s not completely 100%, as TMZ reports that Lamar is “a bit slow” and is still prone to memory lapses. Khloe clued everyone in to this condition when she spoke to Ellen DeGeneres, 58. She said that her husband’s “long term memory is great. His short term memory isn’t so good…but he’s great…he’s been doing really good.”
Despite these subtle memory issues, a source tells TMZ that Lamar’s “miraculous” recovery means he has a shot of “living independently” in just a matter months. That’s a huge turnaround from when he arrived “dead” at a Nevada Hospital following his terrifying drug overdose. Way to go, Lamar!
Just because Lamar is walking all over the hills of California doesn’t mean Khloe’s letting him out of her sight. The Strong Looks Better Naked author is doing everything she can to keep an eye on him, making sure he stays out of trouble and continues his “miraculous” recovery by going to physical rehab.
Khloe even “rented Lamar a place insider her gated community to keep him close,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told Hollywoodlife.com. While Lamar wasn’t thrilled with the new living arrangement, as he was staying with Khloe after leaving the hospital. Khloe made the call so it wouldn’t “[interfere] with her relationship” with James Harden, 26. But now that Khloe and Lamar reportedly split, will Lamar move back in?
