Lamar Odom is recovering well

Lamar Odom's organs have all "recovered".

The basketball star is currently being treated in hospital after a four-day drink and drug binge and his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian has revealed he no longer needs "any machines to keep him alive".

She said: "Lamar is actually doing great compared to where he was. It was not looking good from where we started. But at this moment he is not on any machines to keep him alive anymore. His kidneys are recovered and all of his organs are pretty much recovered. It's more his brain is still affected and physically he has to learn how to walk again and he is learning how to feed himself again.

"All those normal things we take for granted every day and it's a really long road and it's going to take a long time. People hear he's off machines and they're like, 'Oh great, he's going to be running out of there.' That's not the case but I'm so blessed on the progress of where he is and I know he'll get there, it's just going to take [time]."

The 31-year-old beauty also claims the doctors don't mince their words but insists she has complete faith Lamar will get back to how he was before.

Speaking to On Air with Ryan Seacrest, she added: "'We don't have a crystal ball' - they love reiterating that to me. I'm very optimistic and I want to believe he can.

"There are no promises, but if he's willing to do the work - I know the speech therapy, or the occupational therapy, or just all the cognitive stuff I'm sure it's really hard for him and frustrating - but if he's willing to do it, I don't see why not. But it will take at least a year; at least."
