Khloé K Says She Was First Told Lamar Odom Only Had Four Hours To Live
Khloé Kardashian's life was very different in mid-October than it is today.
The 31-year-old member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan was on a hit reality show, rocking a healthier physique and scheduled to do press for her book, “Strong Looks Better Naked.”
That was all put on hold when she received a life-changing phone call. Her semi-ex-husband, Lamar Odom, was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel after suffering a series of strokes.
Khloé spoke with "TODAY" show anchor Natalie Morales about the phone call she received informing her Lamar was in the hospital and the immediate aftermath of events that took place.
Of Lamar and the call, Khloé told "TODAY,"
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 'OK, 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.'
She added this was by far one of the most emotionally stressful moments of her life.
According to Kardashian, Odom is doing OK nowadays, though there is a lot more work to be done.
Every day is different. The great thing is he's off of medical machines that will keep him alive.
At the moment, Odom is relearning how to walk again while undergoing cognitive and speech therapy.
Doctors said Odom should be mentally fine within the next year and a half to two years, but there is no real way to know for sure, according to Khloé.
It's not all terrible for the Kardashian sister, though.
In the interview, she opens up about her recent weight loss and dealing with Caitlyn Jenner's transition, a development she learned while a camera crew was filming the family.
