The reality TV stars took to Instagram late on Saturday, Oct. 17, to update fans on the former NBA champ's progress and to thank everybody for their prayers, after returning to Las Vegas to visit Khloe Kardashian's estranged husband in the hospital.

Kim, 34, was joined by younger sister Kendall Jenner, 19, for her visit, and according to the pregnant celebrity's social media message, the bedside reunion was a good one.

Captioning a snap of herself and Odom dancing together in the past, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed the struggling Lakers star was now smiling. "I have faith in you. I believe in the power of prayer and positive energy!" she wrote. "Thank you all for your prayers! Lammy- I'm so happy Kendall & I could make you smile today! God is good!"

Kim's update came just minutes after her mom, Kris, 59, shared a TBT snap of herself, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian posing with Odom years ago. Her message was equally uplifting, and also referred to the basketball player's smile.
