UPDATE: Blogger Injured By Propeller Still In ICU, Eating Her Fave Foods
Last week, Lauren Scruggs, the fashion blogger behind BlogByLolo.com, was severely injured after accidentally walking into a plane propeller. Her left hand was instantaneously severed. This morning, Scruggs’ parents spoke to Good Morning America to update them on their daughter’s progress.
“She’s smiling, her face, you know she’s able to raise both eyebrows,” Jeff Scruggs said. “That doesn’t sound like a big deal, but they were worried about the nerve, on one side, and she’s able to do that, so we’re so grateful and thankful for all of that.”
She is now able to eat some of her favorite foods again, including sweet potatoes and hard-boiled eggs, her father said.
“It’s just a miracle to see the progress that she’s been making,” Jeff Scruggs said. “She’s got her spunk back, her personality.”
