Lamar Odom poses for FIRST social media snap since hospitalisation

Lamar Odom gave the Kardashian clan a run for their money in the selfie stakes last night when he posed for his first public snap since being taken into hospital.

The former NBA player has been in intense recovery after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel in mid-October after a drug overdose.

Yesterday his son, Lamar Jr, posted the first photo of the basketball star since the incident, a father-and-kids selfie which also featured Lamar's 17-year-old daughter Destiny.

"Christmas with my pops," Lamar's teen son captioned the family photo. "Here’s to 2016. Blessed."

Within 48 hours of Lamar's hospitalisation, his high-profile ex Khloé Kardashian had not only rushed to be by his bedside, but had also called off all divorce proceedings so that she could be his main medical decision-maker.

The pair, who originally split in 2013, are still legally married.

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres back in November, Khloé admitted that her ex had a long road ahead in terms of leading a normal life again, but added that he had been extremely lucky to even survive.

"He is off all the machines that help his organs but he has such a long way to go," she explained.

"He's really confused a lot, we have to remind him. Every day is different.

"Sometimes he knows who the president is, and his birthday, and other times he thinks he's 26, and I say, 'I bet you wish you were 26, so do I.'"

Khloé admitted that Lamar's family have been reluctant to tell him how exactly he ended up in hospital in case it "sets him back" in his recovery.

"I can't tell him. We tell him he had a brain injury, I can't tell him how that brain injury was caused."

Here's hoping for positive strides in Lamar's health in 2016.
