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.
