Although Lamar Odom has a long road to recovery, he is getting better with each day! Khloe Kardashian updated fans on her estranged husband’s condition after he overdosed at a Nevada brothel in October.
“He is definitely doing better, which is awesome,” she told Extra during a book signing to promote her new read, “Strong Looks Better Naked.” “Every day is better, he's off of all machines that, he is alive on his own, and no machines are helping him, which is great, but he still has a lot of physical and cognitive therapy to go through, so it’s a long road for him."
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star explained that while the 36-year-old is “really strong” some days, he’s is weaker other days because the recovery is “mentally draining.” She added, “It’s gonna be a long, long time.”
The 31-year-old also opened up about what’s next for the former NBA star. “He will try to learn how to walk... so that is first,” she said. “When he can support himself on his own, or physically try to walk better on his own or at least with an assistance, with, like, a walker, then he will probably leave the hospital and do a lot of cognitive and mental strengthening."
Khloe also gave a sneak peek of her self-help book, which includes her struggle getting over her split from Lamar. "I definitely feel like the strongest that I've ever been and it was highly requested, people kept saying, 'How did you get over a divorce?' or, 'How did you get through this or your father’s death?' — so many obstacles that I have been through that have been public — and, 'How did you do it and still always be so positive?' and of course the weight loss,” she explained. “It's not just about the weight for me, it was so much mentally and spiritually that I feel so much stronger which gave me the strength to lose weight and to keep it off, 'cause it's also superficial if it's just about the weight."
