Khloe Kardashian Was Told Lamar Odom Had Four Hours to Live

The reality star has spoken about what her husband went through after he was found unconscious at a brothel. She explains that the whole experience was “terrifying” and she was constantly making very difficult decisions for Lamar as they attempted to revive him. Khloe candidly explained:

“They told me that he had four hours. It’s a horrible call to get. Getting to the hospital and knowing he’s in a coma and having to run these tests or make medical decisions — it’s terrifying…You have to make risk-and-reward decisions. Like, okay, well, there’s an 80 percent chance if we do this operation, he might pass away. But also, if we don’t do it, there’s a 90 percent chance he’ll pass away…[Later on] They kept saying, ‘He’s not out of the woods. You’re so optimistic. You’re so positive.’ They wanted to keep reminding me, ‘We’re nowhere in the clear.’ But I was like, ‘You guys told me he was going to die just a few days ago.’”

Khloe says it could be around 2 years before he’s fully recovered because he has to learn how to walk and speak again. She said it’s a long road ahead and nothing is certain:

“learning how to walk again and learning . . . cognitive therapy and speech therapy. They think, like, within a year and a half to two years that, mentally, he might be fully recovered. But they don’t know.”
