Khloe Kardashian has not left Lamar Odom’s side since his nearly fatal collapse on Tuesday, October 13. She is stopping everything in her life to be there for her estranged husband.
Lamar Odom’s condition seems to be improving, but he still remains in critical condition. Khloe Kardashian has refused to leave her husband’s side, and is willing to drop everything stay at the Las Vegas hospital with him, according to new reports. An inside source close to the situation revealed that Odom’s condition is improving, but still very serious as of Sunday, October 18.
“Lamar today again has had moments when he is awake and more responsive. He is still in the ICU, is receiving oxygen and sleeps a lot. He is not talking, but seems to understand when Khloe and the medical staff speak to him. He will have another head MRI in the next few days to check for any damages that could have been caused by strokes.”
Since Khloe is still legally married to Lamar, and she makes his medical decisions, she hasn’t left his side since arriving to the hospital earlier this week. It’s been reported before that Khloe even sleeps next to his bedside, and it seems like that rumor is true.
“Khloe still hasn’t left his side and looks very tired. As soon as Lamar wakes up, she rushes over to hold his hand. She sleeps on a pullout bed next to Lamar.”
Now, friends and family are saying that the youngest Kardashian sister is a “shell of herself” since staying by her husband’s side inside the Las Vegas hospital. She’s obviously mentally and emotionally exhausted from worrying about the love of her life as she continues to make important medical decisions for him.
“Khloe has been making the decisions and it has been very hard on her. Making these decisions is very hard. Kris came and was very helpful and supportive.”
The Kardashian sister has a lot on her mind this month. Her best friend, Malika Haqq, was recently arrested for a DUI. The 32-year-old crashed her car on the Los Angeles freeway around 3:00 a.m. on Thursday morning. Haqq spent a night in the Van Nuys jail, and was released on $30,000 bail. The Dash Dolls star then arrived to the hospital to support Kardashian, as she sticks by Odom’s side.
Some have been wondering if seeing her husband on the brink of his death has caused Khloe to have some feelings for him again. It’s clear that Khloe and Lamar never stopped loving each other, and that Lamar’s addiction has gotten in the way of their four-year marriage. An inside source to the Hollywood Life that although Khloe still has feelings for Lamar, it’s not necessarily romantic love. She’s just focused on his well-being at the moment.
“Anything that’s romantic is the furthest thing from Khloe’s mind. She simply wants Lamar to get better. She’s not thinking about any romance or sex or sweet gestures from anyone, including Lamar or James. She’s numb to those feelings. Her main concern is Lamar and his health!”
Khloe Kardashian has reportedly been dating Houston Rockets player James Harden despite still being legally married to the former NBA star.
Not only has the Kardashian sister been sleeping by Odom’s bedside, but she’s also keeping a vigil and prayers going in hopes that he will recover. According to an E! News report, Odom said “Hey, baby,” to Kardashian before falling back asleep. He’s also “opened his eyes” and “grabbed the doctor’s hand.” As of Friday, Odom is no longer in a coma and he is not brain dead, despite what reports have claimed earlier this week.
Lamar Odom was also the subject of a dead hoax that circulated across social media that was quickly debunked by several news sites.
Odom fell into a coma after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel on Tuesday. His friends and family, along with his former NBA teammate, Kobe Bryant, has been visiting him all week long. Sources say that doctors are still figuring out Lamar’s condition. As for Khloe Kardashian, she has not yet spoken out about her husband’s health scare.
