Lamar Odom’s road to recovery is definitely going to be a long one.
Lamar Odom, 36-year-old former NBA star could be “mentally fully recovered” in a year and a half, according to what his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian said last month. A source close to Lamar Odom tells ET that, currently, he’s far from looking like his old self. “He’s not doing great,” the source says.
“His speech is still slurred and he can barely walk on his own yet. He forgets a lot of people’s names sometimes even his own. He definitely has some memory loss.”
Looking at the bright side, the Kardashian family is still fully supporting him.
“They all pop in to see Lamar at Ceders-Sinai Medical Center, including Khloe,” the source says.
Last Month when Khloe Kardashian was promoting her book “Strong Looks Better Naked”, 31-year-old Khloe, admitted that her ex was still having trouble processing the events of the last two months according to The Insider report. Odom was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada on Oct. 13, and has since been undergoing intense therapy after coming out of a coma.
“I don’t know if he can right now,” Khloe candidly responded when asked if Lamar has been able to show her gratitude for sticking close to his side. “Like, I don’t know if he fully understands everything, but I know he is grateful… and I’m not doing it for validation. I’m not doing it to get praise back.”He’s doing better every day, for sure, which is a blessing, but it’s going to be a long road and he has to walk that road,” Khloe also stressed to ET last month. “It’s going to be a long time.” ‘It’s more his brain is still affected and physically he has to learn how to walk again,’ the reality star continued. ‘And he is learning how to feed himself again.’ ‘All those normal things we take for granted every day and it’s a really long road and it’s going to take a long time.’
In a new video on her website and app on Sunday, Khloe talked about her struggles with anxiety after going through a rocky. 2015.
“Lord knows I’ve had stress and anxiety lately,” she said. “This year has been absolutely horrible, but it’s almost done. I’m just praying that 2016 will be better. It has to be.”
