Khloé Kardashian gave an update on husband Lamar Odom’s condition in a new interview with Peoplewhere she describes the moment he woke up from a coma as “a sigh of relief for everybody.” “Every hour is different,” she said. “It goes up and it goes down but he’s awake. He’s alive and that’s all I wanted, was for him to be okay.”

Odom was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel Oct. 13 and was rushed to a hospital, where he reportedly regained consciousness a few days later. According to the person who called 911 for Odom, the former NBA player — who has a history of substance abuse and checked into rehab soon after receiving a DUI in 2013 — had cocaine and sexual enhancement supplements in his system.
