Lamar Odom’s prognosis has not improved and according to TMZ, Oct. 22, 2015, he had to undergo two emergency surgeries on his chest, but what those surgeries entailed has not been released. However, the two surgeries has put Lamar in a “fragile state of mind” and he becomes very emotional and/or very upset at times as he tries to deal with what happened while he was at the Love Ranch brothel. Apparently, he remembers being at the brothel, doing drugs, but he feels embarrassed because he overdosed and it landed him in the critical care unit. A source told Hollywood Life that he has taken the news very hard and feels ashamed of that he ruined his name, his family, and the Kardashians.
Lamar was doing better while at the Sunrise Hospital in Nevada, but Khloe made the medical decision to transfer Lamar to Los Angeles where his condition has not improved very much and he now battles pneumonia. Reports vary greatly on Lamar’s health as the publicist for his aunt JaNean sent the statement, “To our overwhelming delight, Lamar’s courageous improvement continues on the incline in Los Angeles. He is beginning to gradually flourish both mentally and physically. His use of speech has increased, and he’s more cognitively responsive.” She also stated that Lamar was undergoing an aggressive therapy regimen, but she didn’t elaborate what that entailed. However, other reports say that Lamar cannot walk even with help and he is on kidney dialysis for six hours every day. Some are saying that he may need a kidney transplant if his condition does not improve. It seems that the only thing that everyone agrees on is that Lamar is at Cedars-Sinai Hospital and Khloe Kardashian is by his side, calling the shots on his care and finances.
Perez Hilton reports that the doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital have banned everyone from entering Lamar’s room except for Khloe Kardashian. The doctors want Lamar to remain in a calm environment so his body can begin to repair itself and it will help him come to terms with his mental and physical state. A source told People, “Lamar is in a very fragile state. The infection, that is being aggressively treated with strong intravenous antibiotics, is unfortunately not getting better. There are many concerns about his health.” As people are sending their thoughts and prayers for Lamar to get better, others are offering their kidneys to Lamar via Twitter according to Hollywood Life. However, many other posters blame Khloe for moving him from the Sunrise hospital to the Los Angeles hospital in the first place. Many believe that it was too soon to move Lamar such a distance and the trip caused his pneumonia and his decline in health.
Lamar Odom was found unresponsive at a brothel in Nevada, called the Love Ranch and they called 911 for help. He remained in a coma for several days and was on life support but then, he started breathing on his own and woke up out of his coma long enough to see Khloe by the bedside. He said, “Hey Baby,” gave a thumbs up, and then drifted back to sleep. He allegedly was alert or coherent enough to promise Khloe that he would never do drugs again and he signed a petition with Khloe to ask the court to dismiss their divorce case. However, it was done in such a way that if Khloe decides she still wants the divorce at a later date, it could still go through.
