As her mother Cheryl Scruggs puts it on her Caring Bridge blog, Lauren's continuing recovery will be a "marathon, not a sprint." Cheryl points out that "Lo's physical pain has subsided a great deal [but it's] now the emotional pain that is the tough one."
This weekend, however, the Texas blonde got one step closer to looking and feeling like her stunning self again...
Scruggs was fitted with a new prosthetic eye Saturday. According to Cheryl's blog, Lauren's parents and twin sister Britt accompanied her for the all day process with an ocularist.
"It is beautiful," Lauren's mom gushes. "Thank you God for providing."
Lauren and her family "met again with the arm people this week" about a prosthetic limb. "Another step," her mom writes. "Praise God there are options."
"Hard to say where each of us [is] on a given day, in a given minute," Cheryl explains. "At this point, somewhere between denial, anger and bargaining, I think."
