Lamar Odom has the world rooting for his recovery, but nobody seems to be praying harder than his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian. The reality star has reportedly not budged from Odom since he was admitted in critical condition last week, with a source saying she "won't leave his side."
“Khloe is still by his bedside,” the source adds. “She strokes his hand and kisses his cheek. It's very sad and sweet." Another source tells People magazine, "She wants to be there so that whenever he opens his eyes, he sees her."
Despite the miraculous progress of the past few days — Odom is out of a coma, has become more responsive and breathing without a ventilator, according to the latest reports — Kardashian is "still scared and still concerned" about his condition. "His organs still aren't that strong," the family source says, adding that "they don't know the damage. It's promising, but he is not home free."
Indeed, the extent of the damage to Odom's organs, including his brain, following a three-day drug and alcohol binge at a Nevada brothel are still not known. But TMZ reports that the former NBA player will need months of rehab, which will include speech and physical therapy. Khloe was allegedly in a relationship with James Harden, but has supposedly vowed to stay with Lamar Odom and will not finalize their divorce.
