Lamar Odom recovery update: Rumors about liver failure are just rumors

A report in the TMZ.com claims that the former athlete’s health has improved so much he was moved out of the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) into a private room. His popularity among his fans can be gauged by the fact that numerous fans had offered to donate their kidneys should Lamar need an organ transplant. The 6-foot-11 former Los Angeles Laker, who has been bedridden since going into a coma Oct. 13, is now able to walk a bit with help.

Another good news that has come out of the hospital thanks to sources is that the athlete is able to walk a little and talk a bit. They claim that he continues to defy the odds after almost dying two weeks ago. Wife Khloe Kardashian, who called off the couple’s divorce, has vowed to stay by Odom’s side as he recovers as long he promises not to do drugs anymore. The former NBA star was found in very bad shape and unconscious on October 13. He had spent as much as $79,000 in just three days on hookers and drugs at the Love Ranch in Nevada.
