It was an “all day process,” adds Cheryl, and “by 5 p.m., it was done, and her new eye was in place. It is beautiful. Thank you God for providing.”
The 23-year-old owner of fashion blog LOLO may also soon receive a prosthetic arm. Her mother says the first meeting about her new arm will be handled next week.
“Again, another step. bittersweet……” her mom proclaimed.
While Lauren Scruggs has finally been seen out in public her mom says that her daughter is now suffering a new type of pain:
“Lo’s physical pain has subsided a great deal. It is now the emotional pain that is the tough one,” writes Cheryl. “Please continue to pray. Your prayers are so appreciated … More than you know.”
Congratulations to Lauren on her new eye and her increased path to further recovery.
