Lamar Odom: Family Speaks on "Miraculous" Recovery

by at .  Updated at . Comments

With Lamar Odom out of the hospital after nearly three months, his family could not be more grateful for the basketball star's turnaround.

The husband of Khloe Kardashian was found on the brink of death in a Nevada brothel in October, and had been hospitalized ever since.

Until this past Friday.

Odom’s aunt JaNean Mercer confirmed that the 36-year-old - who will not be charged with drug possession - is out and on the mend.

“Lamar continues to make remarkable strides and we are asking that you continue to respect our privacy,” Mercer said in a statement.

“Again we thank all of you greatly, your support has been paramount in helping to uplift us during these past last few difficult months.”

Odom's "miraculous" turnaround comes a few short months after he very nearly died and faced a prognosis that seemed grim at best.

Khloe's estranged spouse spent the holidays with his kids, Lamar Odom Jr., 13, and Destiny, 17, in his hospital room in Los Angeles.

Said an insider:

“Lamar is doing way better. He was so happy the kids were there with him for Christmas and they were so happy to be with him."

“The kids were happy … to bring him gifts, all of his favorite things that they wrapped up. They had so much fun. It was very emotional."

It will still be a long road back to health for the star, but we're happy to hear he's making progress and has the support of loved ones.
