Khloé Kardashian is speaking out for the first time since rushing to Lamar Odom’s side after the 35-year-old former professional athlete was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel last week. The 31-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wrote on her website on Tuesday morning.
“The past week has been incredibly difficult. I am so thankful to family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!! XOXO, Khloé,”
Yesterday, Odom was discharged from Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas and transported via helicopter to a Los Angeles-area facility. Khloé was photographed exiting the hospital, and she has continued to remain by her ex’s side as he recovers since coming out of a coma on Friday. Lamar has spoken to Khloé a few times since he came out of a coma Friday, saying, “Hey, baby” and “Good morning.” And while his health is improving day to day, Odom will still need “a lot” of rehab in the coming months. We’re told Odom is “making fast progress” and can move his arms and legs; however, he is not able to stand up, even with assistance. E! News reported on Monday that Odom’s CT scan came back clean, but there may be some cognitive issues ahead. Additionally, the father of three is no longer wearing an oxygen mask and is “doing great with his breathing,” though he is still on dialysis due to kidney failure.
