We hope Lamar Odom's aunt is telling the truth!
In a recent interview, Lamar's aunt, JaNean Mercer, claimed the athlete recently took a "few steps" following his health scare despite reports that his kidneys are failing.
Wow! It sounds like L.O. is having a miraculous rebound — all that support from his family and Khloe Kardashian must be doing wonders!
Odom's loving aunt elaborated on the surprising turn of events, saying:
"He continues to make miraculous progress, taking a few steps in Los Angeles. We couldn't be more overjoyed! We realize Lamar's continued improvement will not be easy, however his unrelenting strength and faith in God will pull him through."

Considering the former reality star had multiple strokes and is definitely not out of the woods yet, we second Mercer's sentiment that his "continued improvement will not be easy".
Despite the cautious celebration, JaNean couldn't help but gush over her nephew's fighting spirit:
"Lamar has always been blessed with a tenacious, fighting spirit, overcoming insurmountable obstacles to achieve the impossible. These past few days have been no different. He is defying the odds in his toughest battle to date with GOD's grace."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves… Lamar is definitely a fighter!
Who knows, maybe Odom's recovery will spark a reconciliation with Khloe now that she's done with James Harden. Stranger things have happened!
