One step at a time! It’s been a long journey for Lamar Odom, who was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13. But the former NBA star has made a miraculous recovery after his loved ones were told he had only hours to live.

Odom, 36, is going through rehab at the facility, and a source tells Us Weekly that he is steadily improving.

“He actually gets a little better every day,” the insider tells Us. “He talks a bit more each day and walks with a walker, but still has trouble processing his thoughts. It’s very slow but little by little.”

Soon Odom will be moved out of the center and into a different rehab facility near his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian’s Calabasas, Calif., home, the source adds.

Kardashian, 31, has been constantly checking in on Odom, and recently pulled double duty when her older sister Kim Kardashian went into labor at the same hospital. Kim and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed their son, Saint West, on Dec. 5.

“Kanye came by Lamar’s room when he was at Cedars to play him a new song,” the source says. “Khloe brought him down to visit, and Kanye was nice.”

In a recent clip from Khloe’s website, the famous family can be seen going around saying what they are most thankful for. During the video, West declares, “I’m thankful that Lamar loved my album.”

“We did visit Lamar today, and we played him his new album [SWISH],” Kim adds. “And then when I was done I said, ‘Did you like the music?’ and he said, ‘Loved it.’”
