Lamar Odom remains hospitalized in Los Angeles, after being transferred from a hospital in Las Vegas last week. When the former NBA star was first admitted, he was unconscious and remained in a coma, so it was difficult to assess exactly the extent his condition.

Now that he's woken up from his coma and more time has passed, doctors have been able to conduct further testing on him. According to TMZ, brain scans have discovered that Lamar suffered 12 strokes during his medical emergency, which have affected both his speech and motor skills. Is is possible that with physical therapy, some of that can be recovered, but only time will tell what and how much.

While Lamar was having trouble with four of his vital organs when he was first admitted to this hospital on October 13, the strokes did not affect any of them and he seems to have recovered function of everything except for his kidneys, which are still failing. He is currently receiving dialysis and there is talk of him possibly needing a transplant in the future.

Khloe Kardashian remains by Lamar's side during his medical crisis and has skipped numerous family events in the time since he's been hospitalized to stay with him. The pair also called off their divorce at the 11th hour and are going to give marriage another shot, as Khloe has vowed to stay by his side throughout the months of physical therapy that he'll be undergoing.
