Lauren Scruggs' Condition Improving After Propeller Accident

by at . Comments

Lauren Scruggs, the model and celebrity fashion blogger who was severely injured in a plane propeller accident on Saturday, is improving somewhat.

Just days after being severely injured by a propeller, she's back on her feet again. "Lauren walks!" reads an update on her Caring Bridge website.

"This morning ... a physical therapist assisted Lauren in walking for the first time," the statement continued. "Once she got halfway there, she said, '30.'"

"Not sure what she meant, [her family] asked her what that means, she replied, 'Steps!' What a praise, she was counting every step that she took!"

On Monday, Scruggs marked a milestone as well, speaking for the first time since the accident. But the 23-year-old still has a very long way to go.

She lost her hand and underwent several emergency surgeries on her face and shoulder after she accidentally walked into the propeller in Texas.

Her father said she had been flying around Dallas in the two-seater plane, and went to thank the pilot when she accidentally walked into the propeller.

"The left eye is still non-responsive; doctors will continue monitoring it for the next few days," the Caring Bridge update on Lauren Scruggs reads.

"Please pray [for] Lauren as she begins to learn the extent of her injuries."
