Doctors seem to be feeling more optimistic about Lamar Odom’s condition. They’re reportedly told the family that he is expected to survive this near-death experience, but he will likely need extensive rehab, and some of the damage to his body is probably permanent. Khloe Kardashian reportedly is committed to staying by his side throughout his recovery process.
Doctors anticipate that Lamar will need months of physical and speech therapists as well as other therapies for the forseeable future, according to TMZ. There’s also an “undetermined amount” of damage to his body that is likely permanent. Well, hopefully this will be the wake-up call that Lamar needs to address his substance abuse issues.
Khloe is said to be committed to staying by his side throughout all of his therapy. It’s unclear what will happen with her relationship with James Harden at this point. This is such a tough position to be in; perhaps Khloe and Lamar will end up reuniting for good? Khloe really didn’t seem to want to divorce Lamar, but he just didn’t seem willing to get help for his substance abuse issues. Now he might not have a choice- or a way to get high- and that just might be what they need as a couple.
