Lamar Odom finally regained consciousness on Friday, October 16. Read on for more details.
Lamar Odom has been fighting for his life since Tuesday, October 13 at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada. On Thursday, October 15, the former NBA star was declared brain dead. Some sources said that his kidneys were also failing and that was the reason why he was placed on dialysis. Kourtney Kardashian was given authority to make medical decisions for her estranged husband. Her family also visited Odom and they were photographed when they were leaving the hospital.
On Friday afternoon, October 16, Los Angeles Times reported that Odom regained consciousness. His condition has been guarded since he was found covered in blood and unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada. According to reports, officials said that Odom ingested a deadly mix of alcohol, cocaine, and herbal sexual stimulant. It was reported that Khloe Kardashian has been by Odom’s bedside since he arrived at the hospital.
An unnamed source said that Odom is now conscious and was even able to say hi to Khloe. Alvina Alston, who is the spokeswoman for Odom’s aunt, JaNean Mercer, confirmed that Odom opened his mouth and was able to speak on Friday.
In one of the recent posts on her website, Kardashian explained that she will not post anything on her social media pages while dealing with Odom’s health needs. Her family, including Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner, also posted identical statements on their own websites.
The family statement reads: “As a family, we’ve decided to hold off on publishing content across our apps while we continue to support and pray for Lamar. Thank you for your kindness and understanding during this difficult time.”
However, the family’s electronic blackout only lasted less than a day. Kylie recently tweeted a photo and asked her 11.9 million followers for a morning prayer.
