Two weeks ago Lauren walked into an airplane’s moving propeller and lost her left hand and eye. Now read for the stunning next steps for Lauren, according to her mom.
Despite losing her left hand and left eye, Lauren Scruggs has been moved from ICU to an inpatient rehab facility. Her parents Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs are at her bedside every day and they are doing there best to keep friends, family and well wishers up to date by posting to their blog almost daily.
Cheryl wrote two very emotional and inspiring blogs over the weekend, calling Lauren’s life their “Christmas gift.”
“Jeff and I are sitting here, quietly, watching Lo sleep, and thinking through the last two weeks,” Cheryl writes. “We could never have dreamed up what happened a little over two weeks ago. We were just “living life”. And bam … life changed in an instant.”
Lauren’s mom also revealed exciting news that Lauren moved to an inpatient rehab facility where she will receive “extensive” occupational, speech and physical therapy. Now that her left eye was removed, they will also begin consultations for her prosthetic eye.
“We have been praying for miracles,” she writes in another blog. “And miracles we have received. More than we can count, more than we even know of. Doctors could not have predicted the amazing progress she has, and is making. She is way ahead of where she should be. We have heard story after story about people recommitting their lives to Jesus, as well as people coming to know Jesus for the first time.”
Lauren walked into a propeller of a two-seat prop plane on the night of Dec. 3, after looking at Christmas lights with friends. Her face and left hand were severely slashed. Lauren’s hand was later amputated, her left eye removed, and she also suffered a skull fracture and brain injury.
