Lamar Odom has made significant improvements since being hospitalized a week ago when he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.

Not only did Lamar wake up from his coma, he was experiencing failure of multiple organs and pretty much every single one has bounced back, except for his kidneys. Lamar is currently on dialysis, but now there is talk about him potentially needing a transplant, TMZ is reporting.

The former NBA star left Las Vegas last night and was helicoptered to Los Angeles, with Khloe Kardashian still by his side. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai medical center, where he will continue to receive treatment.

According to E! News, Lamar is now speaking in full sentences and is able to swallow food on his own, which is a huge improvement from previous days. He is also being treated for aspiration pneumonia.

Lamar is obviously going to need a lot of physical and speech therapy in the foreseeable future, and despite the fact that a CT scan came back clean, there is still a possibility of some cognitive issues.

Our thoughts continue to be with Lamar and we hope that his health continues to improve each and every day.
