About two months ago two-time NBA champion Lamar Odom suffered from a drug overdose and seizure. He was found unconscious in a brothel after a party. Since then he's been recovering in hospital.

Although recent articles suggested that he'd be healthy enough to leave the hospital soon, a recent claim on December 18 shows that he'll be spending the holiday there. However his family will be with him, as they have been so far.

Overall, his prognosis has been fairly good, but he's now struggling to walk without help; he's also been having trouble remembering names, even his own.

One source claims, "he has not spoken in the halls during his therapy." Although there's always an aide walking with Odom on his walker, the source reveals that "he got tired after a short session in the walker and had to be transferred back to his wheel chair."

Odom hasn't been handling this alone, though; his family has been by his side all through his stay. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West even paid him a visit overThanksgiving to let him listen to Kanye's new album.

Doctors have said that his mental and physical health could fully heal in about two years, but when the accident happened they admitted "he has virtually no chance of leading a normal life." Throughout the process they've consistently stated that his chances of survival are 50/50.

Odom's estranged wife Khloe Kardashian has been responsible for all of the medical decisions, and she's been by his side daily.

She clarifies therisky decisions she's been making: "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 die."

Earlier this week she raised hopes of Odom recovering enough in this hospital to be moved into a rehabilitation center, and then home for the holidays. Her and Odom's family are still hopeful of getting him into the rehab center soon enough.

They chose a center close to the Kardashian's home in Calabasas, California. Nonetheless, doctors confirmed that he's not healthy enough to make the move yet.
