It’s been one week since Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel after an apparent overdose. Since that time he has battled back from the brink of death in what is being called a “miracle recovery,” and the NBA star was just airlifted to a Los Angeles hospital to further his recovery.
Lamar’s estranged wife Khloe Kardashian has been there by his side throughout, but the reality star has remained relatively quiet about Lamar’s condition publicly. Earlier today, she broke her silence, and issued a lengthy statement thanking her family, friends, and fans for their support.
Here’s Khloe’s full statement:
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!!!
We continue to send our well wishes along to Lamar Odom, his family, and friends, and hope that he is able to make a full recovery — not only from his current medical issues, but also his struggle with addiction.
