Mixed reports of Lamar Odom's condition have surfaced Thursday, just 48 hours after the former Los Angeles Laker and NBA star was found unresponsive in a Crystal brothel.  

Sunrise Hospital has not given an update on his condition, and the Kardashian family have not released a statement regarding his health, despite their continued support on social media.  

Reports have surfaced that Odom is lying in a hospital bed brain dead, while others say he's in a medically induced coma.  

Jazz Zedd is a patient at Sunrise Hospital, and she says if Odom is comatose, she knows what he is going through.  

Zedd suffered a massive brain injury in 2013, and was in a coma for four months.  "I only remember vivid colors," said Zedd.  

She fought, but the hardest part was when she woke up again.  "I had to relearn how to walk, talk, swallow food," says Zedd.  

She calls her experience a miracle, and is hoping for the same for the former basketball star.  

Several Kardashian members have reportedly left the hospital, but Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom's estranged wife, remains inside.
