What a terrifying phone call. And this is exactly why Khloe didn't think twice about dropping everything to be by his side. We knew that this was serious, but it was also dire. Something helped Lamar beat the odds, and it very well could have been Khloe's presence. She was the one making the important medical decisions and it's clear she was doing all the right things.

This situation has changed Lamar forever -- we don't know the full extent of any lasting issues he may have. And it has also changed Khloe. A person simply cannot go through a life or death situation like this without coming out different. This is a man she loved, and still loves. She says how terrified she was when faced with making his medical decisions. And the whole thing has taken a toll on her -- she reportedly contracted a staph infection while at the hospital visiting Lamar. She'll be okay, but still -- this is a lot to handle -- a lot of very serious things.

When talking to Natalie Morales on Today, Khloe said that there were a lot of risks in all the medical decisions. She was told things like "there's an 80 percent chance if we do this operation, he might pass away" and "if we don't do it, there's a 90 percent chance he'll pass away." 

That pressure is so much for her to handle, but Khloe's handling it and she is staying positive despite all the setbacks and issues. She shared that Lamar is learning to walk again and is in speech therapy as well as cognitive therapy. She was told that within two years, he may be fully recovered. She remains the only one in charge of his care, and also a steady emotional support for him. It's a real testament to the wonderful person that she is.
