In addition to the huge improvements Lamar Odom made over the weekend, the former NBA star has now been released from Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas and is headed back to Los Angeles, E! News is exclusively reporting.
Khloe Kardashian, who has remained by Lamar's side since he was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday, accompanied him in the helicopter ride from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. The former NBA star will obviously still need a lot of treatment, but this is yet another step in the right direction. It was not yet clear which type of facility (hospital or physical rehab center) that Lamar will be entering when he arrives in Los Angeles.
While he's obviously made huge strides in a positive direction, he's still going to need a lot of treatment. According to TMZ, Lamar is going to need months of rehab and he'll have physical, speech and other therapists working with him for the "foreseeable future." Also, at this point, nobody is quite sure which organ damage will become permanent. He is still on dialysis for his kidneys and E! News reports that there is a possibility that there will be some cognitive issues.
We're very encouraged by all of the positive strides Lamar has made in the past few days and we continue to wish him the best in his recovery.
