Incredible! Lamar Odom is walking again after the months-long ordeal that left him incapacitated in the hospital! Lamar can now take steps without assistance. What a miracle!
Lamar Odom, 35, just took a huge step in his recovery — literally. Stuck in the hospital since October 13 under life-threatening circumstances, he’s now able to walk without the help of a walker for the first time, according to TMZ. We bet Khloe Kardashian is freaking out right now!
Up until this point, Lamar hasn’t been able to get around without the assistance of a walker and another person guiding him, after his overdose and subsequent multiple strokes, a source told TMZ. But Lamar apparently decided to put the walker aside on Thursday, December 17, and try walking on his own. He was successful, and his massive progress completely shocked his doctors. And us!
That’s not the only major improvement Lamar made recently. During a visit with Khloe shortly before this, Lamar was able to reach his arms above his head and pull up the hood of his sweatshirt. This is an incredible improvement, as Lamar has had limited mobility, of his hands and arms in conjunction with his legs. He’s getting a little better every day!
Something that is just miraculous: Lamar is showing signs of better brain function as well. The man who once could not recognize his own wife or children, or remember his own name, is now able to identify hospital staff. It’s a slow, but steady recovery, and Lamar’s making wonderful strides. It’s only a matter of time before he’s able to finally move to a rehab facility, which Khloe has made sure is near her home in Calabasas, CA. What joyous news!
