After a very, very close call last week, Lamar Odom is reportedly ‘conversational’ and able to send text messages.

According to a report on the Daily Mail, after first opening his eyes and squeezing Khloe’s hand, Lamar was a few days later helped into a chair from his bed and was even able to send text messages while breathing on his own. He also passed a critical ‘swallow’ test. He’s had the Kardashian by his bedside since being found unconscious in his hotel room at a Nevada brothel last week.

However, the same source said that most of his communication comes from a simple thumbs-up or thumbs-down.

Doctors believe that Lamar will have to learn to walk and talk again during a lengthy stint in rehabilitation.

People Magazine also reported that ex Khloe Kardashian has vowed to stay by his side throughout his recovery, which could be bad news for Khloe’s new love interest, 26-year-old basketball player James Harden.

Only months ago, Khloe held a HUGE 26th birthday soiree for her new beau and was seen to be moving on happily. It was also reported in the media that when Lamar tried to make contact with Khloe, showing up once at her gym to talk, Khloe didn’t want to talk to him.

Odom’s college coach, Jim Harrick revealed recently that Odom came out of his coma when Khloe said, ‘I love you’.
