It's been nearly a week now since Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel and rushed to the hospital. Upon hearing the news estranged-not-quite-ex-wife Khloe Kardashian reportedly rushed to Nevada to be by his side. But as the rumor mill churned over what Lamar was actually being treated for, which Kardashians were actually there, and whether they brought a camera crew with them, Khloé remained silent, until now. Earlier today she uploaded a post to her website, addressing the situation and thanking everyone for the support. Read the message in its entirety below:

"The past week has been incredibly difficult. I am so thankful to family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!! XOXO, Khloé"

Odom, who was intubated at one point in the last week, has since progressed to breathing on his own, speaking in full sentences, eating on his own, and moving his limbs. However he still cannot stand (even with help) and will require serious rehab in the coming months. He has been discharged from the Sunrise Hospital in Nevada and transferred to a facility in L.A., with Khloé by his side. We'll keep you updated on his recovery as it progresses.
