Khloe Kardashian Releases First Statement Since Lamar Odom Hospitalization

by at .

Over the past several days, we've heard from nearly every member of the Kardashian-Jenner family in regard to the tragic Lamar Odom situation.

Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian have all issued statements on social media in support of their troubled loved one.

And now Khloe Kardashian has done the same.

Khloe, who is technically still married to Lamar, flew immediately to her estranged husband's hospital bedside in Las Vegas as soon as she learned he had fallen into a coma.

She remained there all of last week and is expected to continue to support Odom now that he's been transported to Los Angeles.

"The past week has been incredibly difficult," Khloe wrote this morning on her official website.

"I am so thankful to family, friends, and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work.

"Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made."

Just a few days ago, Odom's odds of survival were placed at a mere 50%.

He may still need a kidney transplant and there's a long road to recovery ahead. But at least there are reasons to be cautiously optimistic.

"You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure," Khloe added, concluding:

"Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!"

These words mark the first time the 31-year old reality star has spoken in public since Odom was found unconscious on October 13 inside a VIP suite at the Love Ranch South brothel in Pahrump, Nevada.

As his legal wife, Khloe was in charge of all medical decisions until Odom was deemed healthy enough to make his own choices.

"Khloe is committed to staying with [Lamar]," a source told Us Weekly, adding of the days ahead and also behind:

"It's a slow process, but Khloe [has been] there every step of the way...It's all been so draining and emotional."
