Lamar Odom is either doing super great – opening his eyes and asking to see his children! – or he’s on death’s doorstep and might leave us any moment. You choose which you want to believe.
From Daily Mail:
From Page Six:
Not so fast, says TMZ:
10:57 AM PT — Reports are being posted that Lamar is now communicating in some fashion, but our sources say he is not. There are some body movements, including eye opening, but doctors have made it clear the movements are all involuntary.
Lamar Odom‘s condition has improved in a hugely important way … his heart is on the mend … TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the situation tell us, tests on Lamar’s heart Friday morning revealed his heart function is “much better.” Doctors have told Lamar’s friends and family this is a good sign of improvement, that a critical organ is responding.
Doctors have asked for “calm” in Lamar’s room because they do not want him stimulated …. because non-stimulation promotes healing.
So, really who knows. Why did I even post this?
UPDATE on the UPDATE:
TMZ is reporting that he is being switched from a ventilator to a breathing mask, which is definitely good news.
Lamar Odom was able to breathe on his own, with the help of a mask rather than a ventilator … TMZ has learned.
Our sources say doctors are trying to get Lamar functioning on his own, so a few minutes before this story was posted, they took him off the ventilator and put a breathing mask on Odom.
We’re told doctors are putting him back on the ventilator and used the mask as a test, and they plan on going back and forth to see if Lamar would be able to breath without heavy life support.
