Most of the updates that we’ve received about Lamar Odom this week have been really sad. But there might finally be a bit of good news about him.

According to both Entertainment Tonight and USA Today, Odom was able to open his eyes today and communicate briefly. A source told ET that Odom was asked if he wanted to see his kids when he opened his eyes and was able to communicate “Yes.” E! is also reporting that Odom said, "Hey, baby," to Khloe Kardashian when he opened his eyes and gave her a quick thumbs up before going back to sleep. They are also reporting that he's no longer using a breathing tube.

ESPN just reported this as well:

That’s all the news that’s available right now, but if nothing else, it’s a glimmer of hope. Keep praying.
