Lamar Odom recovery update: From comatose to awake and talking to KhloÃ© Kardashian
Though he is still not texting and making long distance calls, Lamar Odom has made significant improvement in the last twenty four hours. Former NBA superstar and estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian has been struggling for his life in a Las Vegas hospital for the last six days after being found comatose at a Nevada brothel.
Lamar Odom was taken to hospital by authorities and many sources initially suggested that there was no hope of his survival. He had consumed extremely large quantities of herbal Viagra in the three day sex binge in the legally approved brothel. Many started comparing his case with Whitney Houston and Bobby Brownâ€™s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown who died after remaining comatose for around six months.
Nonetheless health experts have said that there is a basic difference between Odom and Christina cases. While Christina Brown had drowned in the bathtub where she remained under water and without oxygen for around twenty minutes, he didnâ€™t suffer from any such condition. And many people who suffer from drug overdose tend to survive and have healthy lives.
In the meantime, hospital sources have said that the former NBA player Lamar Odom is making progress. ESPN quouted sources as saying that Odom is “way, way better” and is even conversational. ESPN report went on to add that Odom is breathing on his own and no longer has a breathing tube. Nonetheless the report added that the former NBA star was still wearing a breathing mask.
In the meantime reports suggest that Odom who had consumed as many as ten herbal Viagra tablets was talking to family members. He slept most of the day Friday but did see his children, father and Khloe Kardashian, his estranged wife.
When he was taken to hospitals, the people who took them there thought there was no hope of him surviving the drug overdose. In the 911 call released Wednesday, Love Ranch employees said Odom was unresponsive with a light red fluid and white matter oozing out of his nose after using cocaine and taking sexual performance supplements.
In the meantime former Rhode Island coach Jim Harrick told a news source that Odom is responding to communication from Kardashian. â€œShe reached down and said ‘you know I love you’ and he kind of noddedâ€¦Three or four days after being scared to death and fearing the worst, that is a little hope, a little progress. She texted me that (information)â€, said Jim Harrick.
