Kim Kardashian Credits God for Lamar Odom’s Improved Condition

Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom

According to E!, Odom continues to show signs of improvement, since awaking from a coma on Friday. The site reports that he passed a swallow test, a promising sign of neurological function and an important step because doctors took out his breathing tube and needed to ensure he could swallow on his own. The site reports:

Odom was helped out of bed for the first time since being hospitalized Tuesday night. He was moved with assistance into a chair and his breathing showed no signs of distress. He continues to wear a mask to aid the flow of oxygen but he’s breathing on his own. A source told us Friday that, upon opening his eyes and seeing Khloé Kardashian, who rushed to Las Vegas on Tuesday and has spent each night since in Odom’s room, he said “hey baby” and went back to sleep. Overall, however, the former L.A. Lakers star is communicating mainly with hand signals, thumbs up or thumbs down. We hear he’s attempting to communicate with words but his speech is more or less limited to mumbles at this point. The word is, however, that Lamar is “heading in the right direction. This is great progress but there is always the possibility for setbacks.”
