“It’s just a miracle to see the progress that she’s been making,” Jeff Scruggs said, according to ABC News. He reported that she is bouncing back following the traumatic injuries she suffered. 

“She’s got her spunk back, her personality.”

On the CaringBridge website her family wrote the good news that “Lauren’s pain is much more manageable today.”

Her father is giving regular updates about his daughter, who is in a Dallas, TX hospital.  “She’s smiling, her face, you know, 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, and she’s able to do that, so we’re grateful and thankful for all of that.”

Lauren’s family has set up a website for donations at the Lauren Scruggs Hope Fund.
