Odom reportedly began communicating — both verbally and with hand signals — with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian on Friday and has been able to breathe without the assistance of a ventilator, yet he remains on dialysis for kidney failure.

Kardashian has stayed by Odom’s side throughout the ordeal and was joined by father Joe Odom, Lamar’s kids — Destiny and Lamar Jr. — and their mother Liza Morales Saturday.
