Lauren Scruggs' New Prosthetic Eye Is "Beautiful"

Filed under: InspirationModels

After suffering what was described as her "toughest week yet", Lauren Scruggs was on the up and up this week.

According to her mom Lauren's physical pain has subsided and she got fitted for her prosthetic eye.

Cheryl Scruggs wrote on Thursday morning:

Last Saturday was a big day. Bittersweett.

Jeff, myself, Lo and Britt showed up at 9am at the ocularist. We didn't know what to expect, other than it would be an all day process from 9am -5pm. Another new step….. the time had come for Lo to be fitted for her prosthetic eye.

So we proceeded through the day, one step at a time. All four of us would go into the room, and go through another step. Sometimes we waited in the waiting room for a while, other times we could leave for a while to walk around, or go to lunch.

She was fitted and measured. The ocularist carefully painted and shaped the new eye. By 5pm, it was done, and her new eye was in place. It is beautiful.

It's wonderful to hear Lauren's pain is minimal, but Cheryl added it's "the emotional pain that is the tough one".

Lauren Scruggs Had Her Toughest Week Yet

Filed under: ModelsSad Sad

lauren-scruggs-cheryl-scruggs-toughest-week-yet-blog.jpg

Lauren Scruggs may be making progress in her recovery, but according to her mom last week was very difficult.

Cheryl Scruggs wrote on Friday night they are now working through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

Her entry continued:

We have experienced a little of this along this journey, but we now face it head on. Hard? um excruciating……….

They said it was coming……..and it has. It's healthy, yes. It's necessary, yes. But it's brutal.

At the beginning, many of the doctors told us "this will be a marathon, not a sprint; this will be a long rode to recovery.". I guess they were right.

I feel like such a debbie-downer; not being my upbeat, positive self, And I find it hard to write and put on paper what we are really experiencing, Have two months really gone by? Did Christmas really come and go? Is it really 2012? Hard to believe it's been 2 months since it all happened; sometimes it feels like a day; sometimes it feels like 5 years.

We'd like to think the worst is over for Lauren, but as Cheryl said it will indeed be a long road to recovery.

New Details Released From Model Lauren Scruggs' Airplane Accident

Filed under: ModelsSad Sad

1lauren-scruggs-airplane-propeller-accident__opt1__opt1__opt.jpg

Last week we were glad to report that model Lauren Scruggs, who was injured by the propeller of an airplane, had finally started blogging again.

The 23-year-old lost her left eye and left hand after walking next to the plane’s propeller when exciting the plane.

Now we’re finally hearing reports of what happened from the pilot's point of view.

The pilot, who has yet to be publicly identified, is said to be Curt Richmond of Texas.

According to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Administration, Richmond:

"Leaned out of his seat and placed his right hand and arm in front of her to divert her away from the front of the airplane and the propeller.

He continued to keep his arm extended and told the passenger that she should walk behind the airplane.”

After he thought she had safely cleared the plane, he "returned to his normal seat position" and shortly after heard someone shout "Stop, Stop" which is when he shut off the engine and saw her on the floor.

As for Scrugg's family, they reportedly do not blame the pilot for the accident.

On a positive note, we're glad to hear Lauren is recuperating well despite the horrible accident.
