Lamar Odom has had a lot of ups and downs since he was hospitalized on October 13 after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

Fortunately, as Khloe Kardashian shared during a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he is off of all of the machines that were keeping him alive, which was a huge step in the right direction as four of his organs were reportedly failing in the immediate aftermath of his medical emergency.

"He is off of all machines that help his organs, but he still has such a long way to go," Khloe explained on the show. "He's learning how to walk again and feed himself again and put sentences together and cognitively there's a lot...there's's a long, long road ahead."

This week, the former NBA star took another giant step on that road, as TMZ reports that he took steps for the first time on Thursday, without assistance! And there's more good news! The site also reports that Lamar was able to reach his hands above his head AND he recognized a hospital staff member, which is great news, because at one point, he reportedly wasn't able to recognize members of his own family.

We continue to wish Lamar all the best in his recovery and couldn't be happier about these recent developments.
