Lamar Odom's Son Shares First Picture of NBA Star Since Hospitalization
By Antoinette Bueno
Lamar Odom spent the holidays with his two children, Lamar Odom Jr. and Destiny Odom, by his side.
Lamar Jr. posted the first picture of the 36-year-old basketball star following his hospitalization over two months ago on Instagram on Thursday, in which the three pose for a sweet selfie. Lamar is clearly awake in the photo, rocking a black Sean John shirt.
"Christmas with my pops," the teen wrote. "Here's to 2016. Blessed."
Lamar Jr. and Destiny are the former Lakers star's children with his ex, Liza Morales. Lamar is still technically married to Khloe Kardashian, after the two called off their divorce on Oct. 21, so that Khloe could still make medical decisions for him.
"He's not doing great," the source said. "His speech is still slurred and he can barely walk on his own yet. He forgets a lot of people's names -- sometimes even his own. He definitely has some memory loss."
"Every day is different," Khloe told the Today show. "The good thing is he's off of medical machines that will keep him alive. He's learning how to walk again, and [continuing] cognitive therapy and speech therapy. They think, like, within a year and a half to two years, he might, you know -- mentally -- be fully recovered, but they don't know."
On Thursday, the 31-year-old reality star tweeted that she "won't miss 2015 at all."
"Please be safe my loves!!! Have the most blessed new year!!!' Khloe wrote. "2015 I won't miss you AT ALL!!! Cheers to 2016."
Please be safe my loves!!! Have the most blessed new year!!! 2015 I won't miss you AT ALL!!! Cheers to 2016
Lamar was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada on Oct. 13, and has since been undergoing intense therapy at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after coming out of a coma. His hospital bills are estimated to be "in the millions," healthcare costs expert Shana Alex Charles, Assistant Professor at the Department of Health Science at California State University, Fullerton, told ET last month.
