Ever since Lamar Odom was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday, the Kardashians have been relatively quiet on social media and their apps.
Now that Lamar’s condition has improved, however, some of the Kardashians have begun to return to social media, with Kim Kardashian leading the way. On Saturday night, Kim posted to Instagram, indicating that she and sister Kendall Jenner had been able to make Odom smile.
Reports indicate that Lamar Odom’s condition is improving, and Kim Kardashian’s Instagram post would seem to support those reports. Initially, TMZ reported that Lamar’s organs were failing, and he was not breathing on his own. Sources told the media outlet that the basketball superstar had a 50/50 chance of survival.
Odom’s condition has improved dramatically since, and reports now indicate that Odom is breathing on his own and able to communicate with doctors and family members.
Lamar was rushed to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas on Tuesday, after he was found unconscious at the Love Ranch brothel. The 911 call indicates that Odom may have taken a dangerous combination of cocaine and a sexual performance enhancing drug called Reload. When Odom was found by two brothel employees, he had foam coming from his mouth and blood coming from his nose, according to the 911 call.
Several of the Kardashian-Jenner family members have been to visit Lamar since his collapse Tuesday afternoon in a Las Vegas brothel, and reports indicate that estranged wife Khloé Kardashian has not left Odom’s side. In fact, many media outlets have reported that Khloé is making medical decisions for Odom. The pair, who married in 2009, both signed papers in July, but a judge has yet to sign off on the divorce.
Kardashian family matriarch and momager Kris Jenner also took to Instagram Saturday, asking fans to pray for Lamar’s recovery.
The fact that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars have been by Lamar’s side since Odom was admitted to the hospital should come as no surprise. Lamar himself talked to People in 2012 about the way the family bands together, saying that his then-wife Khloé would be “down” for him forever.
“I think two to three weeks [into our relationship], she said, ‘Lamar, you know what? Anything ever happens to you, I got your kids… They’re always going to be all right.’ That meant so much. She’s a serious person and when she’s down for you she’s down for you.”
Khloé Kardashian has stood by the comment, as she paid to fly Lamar’s children to Las Vegas to see him as quickly as she could after the family learned of Lamar’s condition.
During the same People interview, Lamar Odom went on to that he expects Khloé to be by his side in one form or another forever, regardless of what happens in life.
“She’s just thorough. If she has your back she’s going to follow you the whole way through. There’s not a tough time or any situation that’s going to deter her or turn her off from what you going through. If she has your back and she’s down with you, she’s down with you. I’ve experienced that time after time after time.”
In a recent KUWTK episode, Khloé admitted to sister Kim that she still had deep feelings for Lamar, even going so far as to say she “wanted to make sure he’s OK.”
“Lamar and I loved each other deeply, and I don’t believe in acting like that relationship never existed,” Khloé goes on to say. “Things happened, but that doesn’t stop me from caring about him or loving him.”
