It's been almost three months since Lamar Odom overdosed on a cocktail of drugs while partying at a Nevada brothel.
In the weeks that followed, we received mixed reports about Odom's progress.
He emerged from his coma not long after being hospitalized, but sources claimed that it looked as though Odom may have trouble walking and communicating for the rest of his life.
It's still unclear what the future holds for the former NBA star, but the past two weeks have seen some encouraging signs of progress.
Lamar posed for a photo with his children on Christmas, and many fans were relieved to see the 36-year-old looking healthy and happy.
Now, we're getting more details about Lamar's time with his children, and it sounds as though Lamar Jr., 13, and Destiny, 17, are providing their father with the encouragement he needs to make it through this difficult time.
“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,” a source tells Us Weekly.
“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 and very happy."
The insider adds that while Lamar's progress has been slow, he is expected to move from Cedars-Sinai hospital to a nearby rehab facility in the near future.
