Odom has been showing improvement since he woke up Friday from a four-day coma. He was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel Oct. 13 following days of partying and a drug overdose. According to reports, he has been able to communicate and breathe on his own since he woke up.

Odom's estranged wife, Khloé Kardashian, has been by his side in Las Vegas since she arrived there by private jet soon after news broke of his hospitalization. Other members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have been visiting, along with members of Odom's family and some of his close friends.
