Lamar Odom has been making huge improvements since his hospitalization after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel less than a week ago.

On Friday morning, the former NBA player's heart function improved significantly and later in the day, he opened his eyes and was even able to talk, saying "Hey, Baby" to Khloe Kardashian, who has not left his side since he was admitted on October 13.

Over the weekend, there was even more good news for Lamar, who was able to sit in a chair (with assistance) and started communicating with hand signals, according to E! News. The site is also reporting that Lamar is breathing on his own (although he is still wearing an oxygen mask, he has been taken off of the ventilator) and he passed a swallow test, which is a promising sign for his neurological function.

The 35-year-old obviously still has a long road ahead of him in terms of recovery, and it is not yet determined what amount of damage to his body from the incident will be permanent. TMZ reports that Lamar will have physical, speech and other therapists working with him "for the foreseeable future" and that Khloe will be by his side the entire way.

Khloe has been making many of Lamar's medical decisions, as the pair were still legally married when Lamar's medical emergency occurred and will be for at least another 2 months until a judge signs off on their divorce papers.

No word yet on whether or not Khloe has changed her mind on that front, or how this whole situation will affect her current relationship with James Harden.
