It's been a little over a month since Lamar Odom was hospitalized after falling unconscious at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada, and estranged wife Khloé Kardashian has been providing occasional details on his progress.
Most recently, the reality TV star has admitted how "awkward" it is to be promoting her book Strong Looks Better Naked while her thoughts are with Lamar and his recovery. In an appearance on Ellen that airs today, she offers an update on his current status:
[H]e's off of all the machines that help his organs, but still, he has such a long way to go. He's learning how to walk again and feed himself and put sentences together... it's a long, long road ahead.
To keep Lamar moving down the road to health, Khloé admits that no one has told Lamar about the circumstances that landed him in the hospital:
We tell him that he had a brain injury, but we can’t tell him how that brain injury was caused, because that will set him back. He never asks why he’s here. He doesn’t ask. He’s really confused a lot -- sometimes he knows who the president is and his birthday, and sometimes he thinks he’s 26, and I say, 'I bet you wish you were 26, so do I!'
Back in October, it was widely reported that an overdose is what caused this health crisis, so it does make sense that the family believes it would be too traumatic to deal with that in addition to getting better.
As far as plans for their impending divorce, Khloé has confirmed that she's put the brakes on that while she focuses on Lamar's wellbeing.
