Lamar Odom seems like he might be out of the woods… somewhat. After a grim prognosis for much of Wednesday, Thursday and early Friday, by Friday afternoon, Lamar was out of his coma and apparently able to say a few words to Khloe. He has been off the ventilator and while doctors don’t know the full extent of whatever neurological damage he might have, his responses have been good so far. Sources tell E! News that Lamar’s improving condition has been nothing short of a miracle, but doctors are still concerned because his kidneys are still failing and he’s still undergoing dialysis. Here are some additional details about Lamar’s condition and everything else:

His health issues from here. E!’s sources say he’s speaking but very groggy, but “he is following and comprehending commands and giving the thumbs up and thumbs down when answering, which are good signs.” He did suffer an “ischemic stroke” which is something that happens to cocaine users. He’s breathing on his own and his EKG came back normal. His heart rate and blood pressure are fine.

Khloe has been there the whole time. E!’s sources say Khloe arrived with Kim and Kris Jenner. Kanye West stayed behind in LA and it’s being said that Kanye has been looking after North on his own, plus when Kourtney went to Las Vegas to see Lamar and her sisters, Kanye babysat Mason, Penelope and Reign. Khloe has not left Lamar’s bedside since her arrival in Vegas, and she’s even slept in his room every night. She’s making all of Lamar’s medical decisions and she’s making the call on who gets to visit him. Lamar’s ex-partner/mother of his children Liza Morales is there as well, plus Lamar’s kids Destiny and Lamar Jr. E!’s sources say that everyone is getting along fine and there has been no disagreement.

Lamar’s money. I have no idea why we really needed to know about this now, but TMZ finally got the details on Lamar’s estate. When Lamar and Khloe got married, they had a prenup, but even after they separated and were very close to finalizing their divorce, Khloe still would have gotten one-third of his estate had he died. His kids would have gotten two-thirds. Lamar also had “several life insurance trusts, making both Khloe and his kids beneficiaries.” At this point, it doesn’t really matter, although I’ll say this… nothing in their marriage was about money, just my opinion. Khloe makes plenty of money and Lamar used to be a successful NBA player. Money was the least of their problems.
