Lamar Odom has miraculously woken up from his coma and spoken to Khloe Kardashian, who has yet to leave his side.
Khloe Kardashian can finally feel a sense of relaxation. On Oct. 16, Lamar Odom, 35, reportedly woke up for a brief moment from his hospital bed in Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where he was rushed to after being found unconscious on Oct. 13. While reports do claim that nearly “every drug imaginable” was found in his system, it looks like his family and friends’ prayers have paid off.
“Hey, baby,” Lamar said to Khloe on Oct. 16. He then gave her a thumbs up and and went back to sleep, a source has revealed to E! News. Their source also added that Lamar was now breathing on his own. TMZ has added that he has switched from a ventilator to a mask to wean him off of the life support. The NBA star was also asked if he wanted to see his children, Destiny, 17, and Lamar Jr., 13, he indicated “Yes,” sources told ETonline. It is not confirmed whether he spoke or just moved his head.
HollywoodLife.com also spoke to a source at the hospital who confirmed that he was “slowly waking up.”
“He’s speaking and grabbing and moving his legs. Everyone is crying, hoping this means he will come out of this. Hopes are high but everyone is still very concerned. He’s not out of the woods yet, but it’s still very good news,” the insider told us. Click here to see Lamar in happier times on Khloe & Lamar.
Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner were all at Lamar’s bedside to support Khloe, but did have to head home to get Kim to the doctor, and Khloe actually told them to go. “Everyone has too many responsibilities to completely put their lives on hold and stay there. [Khloe] has to bear this burden and she knows it,” our source told us. “They are not abandoning her, they are all coming back. They went home and are dealing with their responsibilities, getting clothes, seeing the kids and grand kids and coming back out. They will not leave Khloe to deal with this alone.”
