While Lamar Odom has made incredible strides in his recovery since being hospitalized on October 13 after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, everyone was clear that he still had a long way to go - and that his condition was still very fragile.

This most recent development is evidence of that, as TMZ reports that he just underwent two emergency surgeries and is in a "fragile" state following what appears to be a setback. The surgeries were reportedly related to chest issues, which could mean his lungs or his heart. He was previously being treated for aspiration pneumonia, as reported by E! News on October 20, although it is not clear if either of these operations were related to that or something else in the chest.

Sadly, this news comes on the same day his aunt released a statement saying that he was "beginning to gradually flourish both mentally and physically."

Currently, no visitors are being allowed into the room, except Khloe Kardashian, who has been by Lamar's side since he was hospitalized and has kept vigil at his bedside ever since.

The pair had recently signed their final divorce papers, but due to a backlog in the family court system, a judge was still 2-4 months away from signing off on them. The delay turned out to be a good thing, as Khloe is still legally Lamar's wife and she was able to make some important medical decisions for him while he was in a coma. After he woke up, he and Khloe submitted a joint request for the court to throw out their divorce documents and the request was granted.
