Lamar Odom has been trying to recover from his drug overdose and while he’s shown vast signs of improvement, like you know, waking up from a coma, the man still has a long way to go. He did suffer 12 strokes, after all. I don’t think anyone thought he was going to hop out of bed, dust himself off, and skip off to Taco Bell like the Lamar Odom of yore. But sadly, signs of serious brain damage are beginning to appear — like not being able to recognize family and friends.
Our sources tell us Lamar has made little progression in the last couple weeks. We’re told he’s only able to speak a word here and there, and at times he seems “empty.”
The scariest part … Lamar can’t recognize longtime friends and even family members when they come to visit. We’re told docs believe he’s suffered significant brain damage.
Lamar has been hospitalized since October 13th when he was found unresponsive at a Vegas brothel.
Yeah, so, that sucks. I guess the lesson here is, don’t do drugs. I mean, sorry to sound glib about it, but I really don’t know what else to say. It’s gotta be heartbreaking for his family and for his wife.
