More signs of improvement from Lamar Odom, as he was apparently well enough to be discharged from the Las Vegas-area hospital he’s been in since last Tuesday and he’s flown back to Los Angeles with Khloe Kardashian by his side. There, he’ll be able to begin the length rehab process he’ll definitely need and seek help from medical professionals for whatever lasting damage he faces as the result of his overdose.
From E Online:
E! News has exclusively learned that the former NBA star has been discharged from Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where he has been receiving medical treatment after being found unconscious on Tuesday, and is heading to California. We’re also told that Lamar was accompanied by Khloé Kardashian in the helicopter ride to Los Angeles.
As we reported earlier today, Odom’s transfer to L.A. was pending his condition remaining stable. Doctors were in the early stages of working out the logistics of how the athlete would be transported to SoCal, because Lamar’s stature previously prohibited him from being airlifted in a helicopter.
Lamar is “making fast progress” and can move his arms and legs, but he is not able to stand up, even with assistance. A CT scan came back clean, but there may be some cognitive issues ahead.
Good news, but also still somewhat unclear as it’s uncertain just how many issues he’ll face long term, even with rehab and professional treatment. Let’s hope part of his treatment is serious therapy and drug rehab/detox. If this isn’t enough to scare you into getting your life together, I don’t think anything will be.
