Pictures of Lamar Odom being transferred by helicopter from Las Vegas to a hospital in Los Angeles

Pictures of Lamar Odom being transferred by helicopter from Las Vegas to a hospital in Los Angeles show estranged wife Khloe Kardashian close to him the entire time.

A helicopter landed on the roof of Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas on Monday as the basketball player was flown to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA.

Khloe led the way as the group headed towards the chopper, while Odom was seen with multiple tubes coming out of his nose and body.

This comes as it was revealed Odom had taken his first steps after arriving in Los Angeles.
He has been visited at Cedars-Sinai by friends and family including Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Master P. 
Alvina Alston, who has been speaking publicly for Odom's aunt JaNean Mercer said of the basketball player's recovery; 'He continues to make miraculous progress, taking a few steps in Los Angeles.' 

However, Odom is still facing many challenges and may need to get a transplant as his kidneys are failing and have yet to recover following his recent bender at a Nevada brothel.

TMZ spoke with a source familiar with the basketball star's condition, who said one of the reasons Odom is moving to Los Angeles for care is that his 'kidneys are shot'. 

Khloe, meanwhile, took a moment on Tuesday to make her first public statement since his collapse.
In a message posted on her app and website, she wrote on Tuesday: 'The past week has been incredibly difficult. I'm so thankful for family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar.

'I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work.'

She said of Odom's condition: 'Incredible strides have been made.'

Khloe made it clear she was touched by the 'outpouring of love', saying that without the 'strength' the support gave her 'it would have been difficult to endure'.
Signing off, the 31-year-old wrote: 'Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!'
