Lamar Odom Discharged, Transferred To Los Angeles Hospital
Lamar Odom was discharged from his Las Vegas hospital on Monday to be transferred to a Los Angeles hospital. With estranged wife Khloe Kardashian by his side, Odom was being taken via a medical helicopter.
As Gossip Cop has noted, Odom has been improving over the last few days since being found unconscious and unresponsive in a Nevada brothel nearly a week ago. He awoke from a coma on Friday, but since then, there’s been conflicting reports on whether he can form sentences and truly talk or only communicate via physical gestures. He remains in critical condition with several organs still in danger, and his long-term prognosis is unclear.
Odom still needs intensive care, with a team of doctors continually assessing brain damage, bodily functions, and the outlook on a meaningful recovery. It was recently decided, however, that such care should take place in Los Angeles going forward. Since arrangements had to be made, it wasn’t clear when such a transfer would happen, but he was officially discharged from Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital on Monday afternoon/evening, and the transport plans are in motion.
Odom has a long road of rehab ahead, but is far from out of the woods. Kardashian still has not publicly commented on the ordeal. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates as appropriate.
