“Getting to the hospital and knowing he’s in a coma and having to run these tests or make medical decisions. It’s terrifying,” Khloe said. “You have to make risk-and-reward decisions,” the famous reality show star added. “Like, OK, 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.”
Khloe revealed that luckily, Lamar is doing better, as he is no longer dependent on life-support machines. The popular star went on to say that this does not mean that he is perfectly well, but he is taking everything step by step. “He is learning how to walk again and learning … cognitive therapy and speech therapy,” she said. “They think, like, within a year and a half to two years that, mentally, he might be fully recovered. But they don’t know.”
Although things do not seem to be perfect, Khloe was quite optimistic. The star said that she hoped that Lamar will make a full recovery. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also revealed why she decided to halt the divorce proceedings. Khloe said that she had to make medical decisions for Lamar and this seemed to be a normal decision, although she remains separated from him.
“I was expediting the divorce prior, and I’m still separated with him, but I’m just not expediting them anymore,” Khloe said. “There was no reason for it. And also, [it’s] in his will that I’m always the medical adviser. And it was just — he had no one else to make these decisions for him,” the star concluded.
