Lamar Odom Hopes to Leave Hospital by Christmas

No matter where Lamar Odom spends the holidays, his family will be by his side.

It’s been just two months since Odom miraculously awoke from a coma after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, but the former basketball player still has a long road to recover. Over the last few weeks, Odom has been making slow but steady progress, leaving him hopful he’ll be able to check out of the hospital and move to a rehab facility by Christmas.

A source revealed to E!Online, that while doctors have made no promises, his family remains in good spirits. “The family is continuing to be optimistic about having him into a rehab center before Christmas,” a source said. “Either way his kids are flying out to be with him, whether it’s at Cedars or the new center in Calabasas that he will be relocated to.”

While it remains to be seen if Khloe Kardashian will join her husband and his children for Christmas, the rehab center he will eventually move to is conveniently located near Kardashian’s home. The reality TV star, who was spotted visiting her husband yesterday, has vowed to continue to support Odom throughout his recovery.
