Lamar Odom says 'Hi' to Khloe Kardashian, source says

Former NBA star Lamar Odom was conscious and able to say "Hi" to estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, a source with knowledge of the situation said Friday.

It was unclear whether Odom remained conscious or how long he was awake.

The Kardashian told him she reached down to Odom on Friday morning and told him she loved him. Odom blinked, Harrick said.

The former Rhode Island coach said doctors were taking "some things" -- Harrick implied they were breathing tubes and taking him off kidney dialysis -- out of Odom on Friday afternoon.

"... And he's awake now," Harrick said. "So that's probably the most encouraging news we've had since it all started."
