Lamar Odom Given 50/50 Chance of Survival, Reportedly Showed 'Some Responsiveness'

Lamar Odom

There are a few conflicting reports surrounding the status of Lamar Odom’s health condition.

Some sources are describing Lamar’s situation as ‘dire’ and that he’s not improving at all. Others are saying he showed ‘some responsiveness’ on Thursday and briefly woke up from his coma.

via TMZ:

Our sources say doctors continue to put Lamar’s chances of survival at 50/50. We’re told he showed “absolutely no improvement” Thursday from the condition he was in when he was admitted to the hospital Tuesday. As one person put it, “He’s in dire straits.”

One of the big issues is Lamar’s apparent consumption of cocaine and an herbal substitute for Viagra, which is a potentially deadly combination.

We’re told he was “entirely unresponsive” all day Thursday and 4 vital organs are still failing, with no signs of improvement. Lamar is not breathing on his own and his doctors believe his brain function is significantly reduced.

We’re told the Kardashian family has flown in several specialists from L.A. to consult with Vegas doctors.

One source said there are comparisons to the plight of Bobbi Kristina, with one big difference. We’re told Lamar did not lose oxygen to the brain for nearly as long as Bobbi Kristina, which offers some sliver of hope.

TMZ’s report of hte situation is pretty bleak. In contrast, CBS LA says that Lamar is still fighting and had a moment of responsiveness yesterday.

Although Lamar Odom has stayed on life support and in a coma at a Las Vegas hospital, the former Lakers and Clippers forward continue to make progress with his recovery. Odom woke up briefly and showed some responsiveness with his body language on Thursday, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

One thing is certain — the longer he’s in a coma the harder the road to recovery. Prayers up for Lamar.
