Slide 1 of 4 | View On One Page

After being found unconscious at the Love Ranch a week ago, Lamar Odom’s prognosis was pretty grim. He had fallen into a coma; he had several strokes while in the hospital; and his organs were failing. Sources were saying that, even if he pulls through, there’s no way he’s going to live a normal life. Now, a week later, things have changed. He’s not out of the woods yet, but here are 7 new developments that have sparked hope.

7. He’s Off the Ventilator

Lamar is off the ventilator and he’s breathing on his own, but he’s still in ICU, is wearing a rebreather mask that is pumping oxygen and he sleeps a lot. The doctors’ next step is to wean him off the oxygen.

6. Normal EKG Test

Lamar was given an EKG test, which shows that his heart is functioning properly, and his heart rate and blood pressure are also looking good.
