Lamar Odom’s friends and family all want to wait by his bedside, but only Khloe Kardashian is reportedly allowed to be in his hospital room now. While she keeps an eye on her comatose husband, find out why everyone else will have to send their prayers from a distance.
Keep your fingers crossed for Lamar Odom, 35. The former Los Angeles Lakers star still remains comatose and in critical condition, but he’s showing some signs of recovery. Lamar is nowhere near out of the woods yet, and doctors have reportedly banned everyone from visiting his hospital room — except one: Khloe Kardashian, 31!
There was good news for Lamar’s friends and family. After his heart was reportedly failing, the major organ has reportedly improved. Doctors have now reportedly asked for “calm,” in Lamar’s room, according to TMZ. The medical officials want to reduce as much stimulation as possible, as non-stimulation promotes healing. The less Lamar is “stimulated” by noise or chatter, the greater chance he has of recovering from this horrible ordeal.
In order to maintain this peace and quiet, “virtually no one” is allowed in, according to TMZ. However, Khloe reportedly remains by Lamar’s bedside. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star hasn’t left Lamar since she joined him. She was one of the first people by his side, boarding a private jet to Vegas once she heard the devastating news of his alleged overdose in a Nevada brothel.
Even if doctors told her to leave, it seems like Khloe isn’t going anywhere. She has been reportedly been sleeping in his room and keeping an eye on him when she’s awake. She doesn’t want to miss a single development in his condition, and when he wakes up from his coma, she wants to be the first one to hug and kiss him.
Considering that Khloe is still Lamar’s legal wife, and she’s making critical medical decisions for him, it makes sense that she would be the only one with unlimited access to his room. After the good news of his his heart improvement, maybe her vigil over Lamar is exactly what he needs?
Still, Lamar needs to fight in order to survive. His alleged overdose on Oct. 13 may have caused brain damage after the multiple strokes he reportedly suffered. Plus, more of his major organs, including his kidneys, were reportedly failing. In order that L.O. gets the best care possible, the Kardashians have flown in some top specialists from Los Angeles to work with Lamar’s doctors. His condition remains dire and he needs a lot more time and luck to pull through.
