Recent news concerning the condition of Lamar Odom, the former professional NBA basketball player indicates that he is not able to recognize friend and family.
According to TMZ reports, Lamar is finding communicating and mobility very difficult though close family and friends have hinted that he has been making some little progress in the last couple of weeks.
Doctors said Lamar Odom can’t recognise friends and family, plus they have already concluded that Lamar suffered a considerable amount of brain damage.
Interesting thing is, the 36 year old sports man, who by the way is still legally married to Khloe Kardashian despite having split up back in 2013, has not been informed of how he ended up in hospital since those close to him fear that the news of the drinking and drug binge, which is what led to his organs shutting down may seriously set him back health wise.
Khloe Kardashian, who rushed to be by Lamar’s side after getting the news explained that: “I cannot tell him. I have told him he had a brain injury, we cannot tell him how it was caused because it we fear it may seriously set him back”.
In an interview on Ellen, Khloe said: “He is off all the machines that help his organs but he has such a long way to go.
“He’s learning how to walk again and feed himself again and put sentences together. Cognitively there is a lot … it’s a long long road ahead.
“He couldn’t put words together today. But he understands.
“He’s really confused a lot we have to remind him. Every day is different.”
