Lauren Scruggs on Recovery: It's a Miracle

by at . Comments

Lauren Scruggs feels lucky to be alive - even blessed.

This, after she accidentally walked into a propeller and lost her left hand and eye. Her mental state is just as astounding as her physical recovery.


"It's kind of weird to say, but I wouldn't trade it," the 24-year-old model and blogger says. "I've seen it as a miracle. I've been through a lot but I'm living."

Scruggs tells People that she's adjusting to her prosthetic eye and several different prosthetic arms, plus re-learning how to tie her shoes and drive.

It's hard, but she's coping. Make that thriving.

"Sometimes it's easy to dwell on the fact that I don't look the same," says Scruggs, who is releasing a memoir written with her family this week.

"But every day I'm feeling better and better."

Says her father, Jeff: "You don't take life for granted anymore."

Inspiring story and individual, triumphing over adversity.

This young woman is an inspiration for everyone! There should be more stories like this about hope instead of Karkasian's a$$ and who's screwing who!! Americans are way too addicted to fame.

There should not be any more stories about a dumb ass who walked into an airplane propeller. How often does that happen? Never!
