Khole's complete statement reads:

"The past week has been incredibly difficult. I am so thankful to 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, inlcuding the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible, strides have been made. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!"
