Lamar Odom appears to be on the road to recovery!
The 35-year-old former NBA star has woken up from a coma he slipped into after being hospitalized on Tuesday, following a drug overdose at a brothel in Nevada, and is able to communicate.
On Friday, Odom opened his eyes, saw Khloe Kardashian, who has been by his bedside as he fights for his life, said, "Hey baby," gave her a thumbs up and then went back to sleep, a source told E! News.
The source also said he is no longer using a breathing tube. Another source told E! News on Friday afternoon Odom is speaking and functioning. In addition to Khloe, 31, he is with his children and other family members, including cousins. Khloe, who arrived with mom Kris Jenner and several of her sisters, had had Odom's father, his two kids and their mother flown in to see him.
However, despite his "miraculous recovery," he is not out of the woods, E! News has learned.
