The latest reports on Lamar are nothing short of miraculous, but he is still facing some various serious health issues. Lamar was flown by helicopter to Cedar-Sinai yesterday where he can get more specialized treatment. Lamar is able to communicate and some reports say that he is now about to speak full sentences while others say he can speak a few words and communicates mainly by hand gestures. Most reports agree that he is unable to stand even with assistance. I would think he would be connected to so many machines that attempting to stand would be problematic. His kidneys seem to be the main focus as he is on dialysis and may need a transplant. Normally, a kidney transplant would be unlikely for someone with substance abuse damage, but as we know, celebrities have been known to receive them anyway, Larry Hagman comes to mind.
Lamar is looking at months of speech therapy and physical therapy and Khloe has put her life on hold to be by his side. She finally made a statement on her website today thanking everyone for their prayers.
“The past week has been incredibly difficult. I am so thankful to family, friends, and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!”
Somehow, despite all the crazy that surrounds Khloe, she has exhibited tremendous kindness and character this past week. I hope that the outcome gives Lamar some sort of new lease on life with less despair and more hope for the future.
