Finally…we have some good news to report about Lamar Odom. While the ex-NBA star still remains comatose, one very important organ is on the mend, according to a new report. And HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVE details on his health.

We really hope things keep going in this direction for Lamar Odom. After three days in critical condition, there seems to finally be some signs of improvement for Khloe Kardashian’s ex. Get the latest on Lamar’s status right here.

“Lamar is hanging in there and showing some small signs of improvement,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. More specifically, the 35-year-old’s heart is reportedly responding for the first time, according to TMZ.

The site reports that the functioning in Lamar’s failing heart is “much better,” and doctors are considering this a good sign. The goal now is for things to remain calm in the former Lakers star’s room so he does not become stimulated, and although Khloe is still by her ex’s bedside, doctors have allegedly asked that “virtually no one” has access to the hospital room.

Still, there’s a long road ahead for Lam Lam. Just hours ago, his prognosis was still “bleak,” and he had shown very little improvement since his Oct. 13 admittance. Besides his heart, three other major organs were also reportedly failing after his alleged drug overdose on Oct. 13, and it’s suspected that he’ll have some brain damage after the multiple strokes he suffered. The Kardashian family has reportedly flown in specialists from Los Angeles to work with Lamar’s Las Vegas doctors as they continue to pray for a miracle.

Lamar was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday after a reported four-day bender, during which he allegedly mixed a deadly combination cocaine and an herbal substitute for Viagara. Doctors also reportedly found fluid in his lungs, a result of crack cocaine.
