A statement released Thursday by Alvina Alston, publicist for Odom’s aunt JaNean Mercer, says Odom “is beginning to gradually flourish both mentally and physically.”

A day earlier, Odom and reality star Khloe Kardashian filed a court petition dismissing a divorce filing from December 2013.

Kardashian has been by Odom’s side since he was found in extremely critical condition Oct. 13 at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, and hospitalized in Las Vegas.

The brothel said workers saw him drink alcohol and take supplements sold as “herbal Viagra.”
