UPDATE 1:12 pm PST: Lamar reportedly opened his eyes and spoke to Khloe Kardashian! Details here.
UPDATE 12:04 pm PST: Entertainment Tonight exclusively reports that Lamar has opened his eyes and communicated "yes" when asked if he wanted to see his kids, although it is not clear how he communicated that. TMZ, however, reports that while there has been eye opening and some other body movements, doctors say they are involuntary.
We've been waiting for some good news since Lamar Odom was hospitalized on Tuesday night and this morning, we finally got it!
The former NBA star's heart is on the mend, TMZ is reporting. This is obviously a very important development and the first real ray of hope we've had since he was found unresponsive at a Nevada brothel on Tuesday afternoon.
The site reports that Lamar's heart was tested this morning and that it was functioning "much better." Khloe Kardashian remains at Lamar's bedside, but doctors have asked for there to be "calm" in Lamar's room so that he will not be stimulated and will have a greater chance of healing.
The Kardashians have reportedly flown in specialists from Los Angeles to assess his prognosis. As of Friday morning, Lamar is still getting his nutrients from a feeding tube and has a breathing tube ventilating his lungs, E! News reports. If Lamar's condition remains the same, he will likely be transferred to another facility that can provide more long-term care.
