Lamar Odom is showing signs of improvement after he was found responsive earlier this week. According to USA Today, the former NBA star opened his eyes Friday while in the intensive care unit at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
The person who spoke with the outlet opted to remain nameless due to the sensitive nature of the matter; however, they said that Odom’s eyes appeared to move in reaction to voices and other noises in his hospital room. According to reports, Odom’s heart also began showing signs of increased function.
The athlete’s two children, Lamar Jr. and Destiny Odom, released a statement to CNN earlier today regarding their father’s unfortunate hospitalization.
“Thanks for your outpouring of prayers and support for our dad. We are here with our family and friends. We appreciate everyone respecting our privacy at this time. We ask for your continued prayers.”
We’re wishing Lamar a speedy recovery.
