Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

*Khloé Kardashian posted her first statement Tuesday, speaking out about estranged husband Lamar Odom hours after he was transferred by air ambulance to a Los Angeles hospital to continue treatment after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.

The ordeal has been “incredibly difficult,” she wrote on her website. She also thanked his loved ones and Odom’s doctors for all they’ve done.

“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, including 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 that 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!!!”

As previously reported, Odom, 35, was transported by helicopter from Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas around 5:30 p.m. Monday, according to a statement from Alvina Alston, publicist for Odom’s aunt JaNean Mercer.
