Khloe Kardashian appeared via webcam on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, while sister Kourtney Kardashian was a guest on the show. Khloe updated Ellen about her estranged husband Lamar Odom, and the memory issues he is experiencing.

"His long-term memory is great," she explained. "His short-term memory isn't so good, but I mean if I met someone earlier today I probably wouldn't remember either so I mean that's understandable. But he's great."

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also dished about the fun Lamar has had spending time with Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West's children.

"He loves family time," Khloe said. "I think it makes him feel good to be around everyone too and to just be in a happy environment over obviously where he was."

Lamar Odom still doesn't know why he's in his present condition. Khloe Kardashian told Ellen she believes it's time for him to be told.

"Every day he'll ask me, 'So what happened to me?' Like today specifically, he was like, 'How many tubes did I have in me again?' And I'm like, 'I don't know what's too serious to tell you,' but I'm honest," Khloe explained. "I'm like, 'Well, just a lot. I didn't count. I don't know.' But it's good that he wants to know these answers. Before he didn't want to know. He wasn't ready to know. So it's great that he's at the point that he's ready to know everything happened."

Despite Khloe Kardashian's care of and concern for Lamar Odom, she doesn't plan on entering into a relationship with him again.

"I do believe that we're soul mates but...that's not even where my head is at," she said last week on Good Morning America. "I think people, they don't understand the severity of everything."

"It's all about his health and my happiness and his happiness. And right now those are two individual things," she said.

Even though it's admirable of Khloe Kardashian to devote so much time to Lamar Odom, it's also good to see her getting back to her own life, too.

Even though Lamar was the one who nearly died, caretakers undergo a great deal of stress, too.
