Just days after walking into a small-engine plane propeller, the family of fashion blogger and model Lauren Scruggs announced she is making a remarkable recovery.

“She’s got her spunk back, her personality,” said Scrugg’s father Jeff Scruggs.

Family members said Scruggs, 23, was going to say goodbye to the pilot of a small-engine plane when she accidentally walked into a moving propeller. Scruggs lost her left hand in the accident, suffered a brain injury and is at risk of losing her left eye.

“She’s able to raise both eyebrows. That doesn’t sound like a big deal, but they were worried about the nerve on one side- but she’s able to do that,” Jeff Scruggs said.

On Wednesday, Scrugg’s mother, Cheryl Scruggs, said her daughter took her first steps since the accident.

“They came in yesterday and brought her out into the hallway and she walked,” Cheryl Scruggs said.

"We didn’t know she was counting, but they got about 30 steps out and they turned her around and she said ’30.’ And we’re thinking, ‘What does that mean?’ And she said, ‘I walked 30 steps.’”

In a news conference on Thursday, Scruggs’ parents said their daughter doesn’t remember the accident.
