Former NBA player Lamar Odom arrived in Los Angeles on Monday night with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian after being transported via helicopter from Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, Lamar will be receiving further treatment in L.A. after being found unconscious in Nevada last Tuesday.
Lamar Odom has taken another step on the road to recovery. Less than a week after he was first admitted on Tuesday, Oct. 13, the former NBA star has been discharged from Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas and is en route to L.A. for more treatment. His estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, is traveling with him.
Odom, 35, has been showing slight signs of improvement ever since he came to on Friday, Oct. 16, but a source stated he has a long battle ahead of him. Before he opened his eyes and spoke, he’d been unconscious for nearly three full days.
“He’s still getting better little by little,” the insider said earlier on Monday. “The doctors are starting to talk about plans for what happens when he gets out and that’s how rehab came up, but he still has a ways to go.”
To that end, Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, arranged for him to receive further care in L.A., in part “so they can all be closer to him,” the source said. He was picked up by helicopter on Monday evening.
“It’s all baby steps, very slow. Everything is going very slow,” the insider added. “He’s talking more. He’s very slowly improving. It’s going to be a struggle.”
