Lamar Odom Out of Coma

After being found unconscious from an apparent overdose last week, former basketball star Lamar Odom is out of a coma and apparently talking and "smiling".

The Karashian-Jenner clan took to social media on Friday to express their happiness that prayers worked and Lamar was basically improving.

Kim Instagramed this sweet photo sharing that she made Lamar smile was in the hospital. She also allegedly cancelled her Troop Beverly Hills themed baby shower, which was supposed to happen over the weekend to be by Khloe's side.
Random: but why'd she post a pic from her 2nd wedding?There were no other cute pics?

Regardless, it's great that Lamar is improving.
According to E!:
Since Odom emerged from the coma, he has:
Spoken briefly to Khloé Kardashian, saying, "Hey baby" and "Good morning"
—Begun to communicate using hand signals
—Been able to breathe on his own, without a ventilator. He is also using a non rebreather mask that is pumping oxygen and doctors recently decreased the amount needed. The next step is to wean him off it entirely, which depends on how strong his body is
—Passed a swallow test, a promising sign of neurological function
Left his hospital bed: He was moved, with assistance into a chair
Due to kidney failure, Odom remains on dialysis and doctors are still running tests to determine the extent of possible brain damage or other long-term effects from his overdose.

Lamar's children, Destiny and Lamar Jr. are in Nevada staying in the area to be with their dad. Their mother Liza Morales also came to visit.
Besides family, NBA great Kobe Bryant has been very supportive of Lamar and knocking haters who think different.
