Khloe Kardashian is thanking her "family, friends and fans" for their support after her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, was found unresponsive a week ago in a Nevada brothel.

"This 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," the 31-year-old reality star wrote on Tuesday. This is Khloe's first post on her website and phone app since Lamar's hospitalization.

The former Los Angeles Lakers player was in the Intensive Care Unit at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas for a week after being placed into a medically induced coma. Khloe was by his bedside nearly the entire time.

"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," Khloe added. "Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made."

On Friday, Lamar opened his eyes and started communicating. A source close to the Kardashian family told ET he "was able to say hi" to Khloe. 

"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," Khloe added. "Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!"

Once his condition improved, Lamar was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

While he is still very weak, a source close to the former NBA pro says that Lamar did briefly get out of bed and sit in a chair. He is continuing his dialysis treatments at Cedars that he started at Sunrise.
