Lamar Odom can now move around, speak and even send text messages


LA Times reports that Lamar Odom is making steady improvement. He's reportedly been texting and 'speaking sentences' from his hospital bed since he recovered consciousness. A spokeswoman for Lamar's aunt also said he was improving.


The former basketball player was reportedly helped out of his bed and onto a chair and also passed a  critical swallow test.


However, most of the athlete's communication comes through a simple thumbs-up or thumbs-down, E! News reports. A source close to the situation told E! News: 'This is great progress but there is always the possibility for setbacks.'
Lamar was taken off a ventilator on Friday night after he collapsed on Tuesday during a drink and drug-fueled binge in a Nevada brothel.
