Unconscious Lamar Odom Squeezes Khloe Kardashian’s Hand — Report
Loved ones felt a wave of hope last night when the NBA player squeezed wife Khloe Kardashian’s hand, according to TMZ. (A conflicting report from ET Online indicates it was sister-in-law Kim who felt the hand squeeze).
However, while this may have seemed a sign of responsiveness, a hospital source says medical professionals have warned them the movement was very well involuntary. In fact, Lamar’s condition is reportedly unchanged since he was admitted — and no news is definitely not good news.
In a situation like his, where multiple organs have failed, the longer a patient’s condition remains unchanged the worse the prognosis. For this reason, doctors are reportedly warning his loved ones that Lamar may never awaken.
According to the hospital source, the former L.A Laker has experienced kidney, heart, and lung failure. It is also likely he has suffered brain damage due to lack of oxygen, though the insider stresses Lamar has not been declared brain dead.
Whatever the outcome, Khloe may have some heartbreaking decisions ahead. Because her divorce has not yet been finalized, she is tasked with making medical decisions on her estranged husband’s behalf.
Our thoughts are with her and all of Lamar’s loved ones.
