Lamar Odom latest update: KhloÃ© Kardashian has won his heart, but she isn’t interested
Lamar Odom must thank his stars for not just being alive but also on course to recovery. He was shifted out of the ICU a week ago when his kidneys started working properly and he no longer needed dialysis that took at least six hours on an average.
Despite his motoring skills badly impaired in his unprecedented health condition, he has recovered so much that he talks and eats his food besides he is able to walk with the help of a walker. He doesnâ€™t need human support to walk.
In the meantime his estranged wife KhloÃ© Kardashian organized a birthday celebrations with him and his close friends and family. It was something that many of his fans might not have thought just a fortnight ago.
Lamar Odom turned 36 this past Friday and there are reports that the former Lakers star was more than happy to be alive and mentally sound. The celebrations were held at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he is recuperating.
There are reports that his close relatives were there in large numbers. His aunt JaNean Mercer said in an official statement, “Happy Birthday Lamar! We want to THANK everyone from around the world for your continued prayers and well wishes for Lamar and our family. Every birthday with Lamar is special but today is an especially momentous occasion and we honor GOD for this day and thank HIM for allowing us to spend this time together. Please continue to keep Lamar and our family in prayer as he continues on this miraculous journey.”
Lamar Odom was apparently very excited with the idea of birthday in a private hospital room. A source close to Lamar Odom was quoted by Hollywoodlife as saying, â€œLamarâ€™s happy to be alive today and heâ€™s ready to throw down and celebrate his birthday â€” to the best of his ability, of course! He knows Khloeâ€™s got a few things planned for himâ€¦Sheâ€™s not really the best at surprises or keeping secrets. Lamarâ€™s going to milk his birthday to the last drop, and heâ€™s got one surprise for Khloe!â€
Now there are other reports that suggest Lakers star to be eager to resurrect his marriage with Khloe. â€œHeâ€™s got DVDs of Khloe & Lamar, and heâ€™s going to ask Khloe to spend the weekend with him, watching their show together while reminiscing about the good old daysâ€¦Heâ€™s not stupid. He knows James will be in town for his game this weekend and doesnâ€™t want Khloe to be with James on his birthday. Itâ€™s just not a good look, especially since thereâ€™s so much to celebrate. He hasnâ€™t told her this yet.â€
