After Us Weekly reported that Lamar Odom was still not out of the woods yet, news broke that the former NBA star had to have two emergency surgeries on Thursday, Oct. 22.

According to TMZ, the procedures involved chest issues and a source told the site that it’s put Odom in “a fragile mental state.” Both E! News and TMZ report that since the surgeries, doctors have banned visitors, allowing only Odom’s estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, to see him.

"Lamar is not out of the woods," a source shared exclusively with Us earlier in the day. "I think it's still really touch and go. Khloe is not really responding to friends who've reached out; I think she's just in a bubble with her family right now." 

As previously reported, Odom had been making improvements since being found unconscious at legal brothel Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nev., on Oct. 13. After being treated at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Odom, accompanied by Kardashian, was airlifted to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where he was slowly starting to talk again and stand.

“[Khloe] loves him so much, and she takes their wedding vows — for better or worse, in sickness and health — extremely seriously," another insider told us of Kardashian, who has since had their divorce filings dismissed. "This is a huge wakeup call for Lamar, for his friends and family," the source said. "Everyone is just really hoping for the best.”
