To make matters worse, Khloé's staph infection has kept her away from the hospital, making it difficult to care for her estranged husband.

"Khloé is devastated that she can't go to the hospital and visit Lamar," a source revealed. "That's the thing that is bothering her most about the infection." The 31-year-old reality star has been advised to stay on antibiotics as to not aggravate Lamar's already fragile immune system.
Despite Lamar's hard work in the hospital, it looks like he faces an uncertain future. The source continued, "Lamar has serious longterm and lasting issues. His life will never be the same as it once was."
