Lamar Odom has had fans on edge over the past couple days, and it doesn’t look like the speculation will diminish anytime soon. Recent reports insist Lamar’s prognosis is considered bleak and that he is “in dire straits.” It is being reported that the family is now preparing for the worst.
According to Hollywood Life, Lamar Odom has shown “absolutely no improvement from the time he was admitted,” which leads many to believe that his health will only diminish over time. Although a number of reports have shown glimmers of hope with details about eye flutters and the 35-year-old squeezing his wife’s hand, doctors have reportedly stated that the movements may have been involuntarily and just a result of reflexes. As of now, four of his vital organs are reportedly failing, and he is unable to breathe on his own.
Previous reports touched on the brain damage Lamar Odom has reportedly suffered, but more recent reports state that doctors speculate reduced brain function, which is only getting worse with time. However, doctors still insist all is not lost and that there is hope he could survive. But, unfortunately, the possibility of him having a normal life is improbable.
The bleak circumstances have reportedly influenced Lamar Odom’s family members’ decision to prepare for the worst. According to InTouch Weekly, Khloe Kardashian is reportedly preparing for the possibility of a heartbreaking outcome if Lamar’s condition doesn’t turn around fast.
A new report has revealed that the former NBA star — who reportedly does not have a living will — has placed the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star in a predicament to make all decisions on his behalf as she is still legally his wife. But, due to his bleak prognosis, she’s being forced to make a number of difficult decisions.
An inside source recently shared details about the daunting experience and Khloe’s state of mind at the moment. Needless to say, the situation is quite difficult to go through.
“Everyone wanted to hope for the best, but nothing has changed,” the source said. “Now they are preparing for the worst.”
This update comes shortly after a string of reports that have detailed the series of events that led to Lamar Odom being found unconscious inside Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch, a legal brothel just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. At this point, definitive details about his time at the ranch are still unclear, but the latest report detailing the release of surveillance footage may shed light on the rumored toxic combination of drugs Lamar Odom may have consumed.
As previously reported on Inquisitr, the toxic combination, which reportedly consisted of cocaine and herbal Viagra, is what led to Lamar’s unfortunate medical state. The footage shows the former Los Angeles Laker “popping pills.” However, no reports have confirmed what type of pills he consumed. The Kardashian family has also released a statement in the wake of Lamar Odom’s hospitalization, announcing their plan to go dark over the nex couple of days.
“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.”
The ups and downs of Lamar Odom’s condition will definitely continue to leave fans on edge. Although many news outlets have released a mixture of details, there are still no reports to confirm any speculation. Hopefully, Lamar Odom recovers from the unfortunate incident as fans around the world continue to pray.
