How wonderful! Lamar Odom, who remains hospitalized after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, will have the chance to spend Christmas with his kids. The basketball star’s two children will be by his bedside at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Dec. 25.
After waking up from a coma caused by an alleged drug overdose, Lamar Odom, 36, has been working hard to be well enough to spend Christmas with his children. The athlete was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel in October and has been recovering from the scare ever since. Now, the estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian, 31, is doing everything he can so he can be with his kids this holiday season — details below!
Lamar’s two children from his former marriage with Liza Morales, 36, Destiny Odom, 17, and Lamar Odom Jr., 13, are going to fly to L.A. to spend Christmas with their father, a source recently told Us Weekly. “He has fought to get better mostly for them,” the source said. Lamar and Liza lost their youngest son, 6-month-old Jayden, to SIDS in 2006.
In November, Khloe Kardashian, 31, revealed that Lamar was no longer needing machines to keep him alive. However, standing and walking are still difficult for the two-time NBA championship winner. While his condition remains less than ideal, Lamar continues to steadily progress. “He is supposed to be moved to the rehab center any day now. He’s actually making progress every day,” said the source.
During his recovery, the worried star’s family has continued to remain by his side. In October, Liza and the kids joined Khloe and the rest of the Kardashians at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where their loved one was taken after being found in the brothel.
We’re happy to hear that Lamar will once again be surrounded by those who matter most on Christmas! What do you think HollywoodLifers, will Lamar ever fully bounce back? Give us your thoughts below!
