Lauren’s doctors want to make sure she isn’t ‘exposed to virus’ while she recovers.
Lauren Scruggs, the 23-year-old model whose face and hand were slashed when she walked into the propeller of a two-seater prop plane Dec. 3, is currently recovering in the ICU of Dallas’ Parkland Hospital — but a new update from her family reveals she is no longer accepting visitors.
“Due to the risk of infection, there will be NO VISITATION until further notice,” reads a message on Lauren’s CaringBridge page. “This is a critical time, and we can not risk Lauren being exposed to virus.”
That said, Lauren’s family is “more than thankful and overwhelmed with the support shown through visitation at the hospital.” They encourage well-wishers to continue to support Lauren through prayer, and will update us all when visitors are welcome again.
“She is making progress,” a friend of Lauren’s told HollywoodLife.com on Dec. 6. “But it is a long road ahead. It is such a tragedy. She is SO beautiful inside and out.”
As always, we’ll be keeping Lauren in our thoughts and prayers!
