We know there have been several conflicting reports on Lamar Odom’s condition, but whenever there’s good news circulating we feel want to share and encourage positive support.

With that being said, sources now say Lamar’s heart is improving.

via TMZ:

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, tests on Lamar’s heart Friday morning revealed his heart function is “much better.” Doctors have told Lamar’s friends and family this is a good sign of improvement, that a critical organ is responding.

Doctors have asked for “calm” in Lamar’s room because they do not want him stimulated …. because non-stimulation promotes healing.

Toward that end, doctors have ordered that virtually no one have access to Lamar’s room. We’re told Khloe is still by Lamar’s bedside.

Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie and Kendall have released a joint statement on behalf of the family.

 “As a family, we’ve decided to hold off on publishing content across our apps while we continue to support and pray for Lamar. Thank you for your kindness and understanding during this difficult time.”

Lamar Odom’s kids have released a statement as well:

“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 still praying.

Update: ET reports that Lamar was able to open his eyes and communicate, however TMZ sources have confirmed the movements were involuntary.

Reports are being posted that Lamar is now communicating in some fashion, but our sources say he is not. There are some body movements, including eye opening, but doctors have made it clear the movements are all involuntary.
