After losing her left eye and left hand to a spinning plane propeller, Lauren Scruggs is re-learning some basic day-to-day functions.
Walking through a room without running into something is also “a challenge,” she writes, and driving again will also prove a highly difficult task. “She will need to relearn how to drive and will not be driving for 2-3 months [and] only if she passes the required tests,” says Cheryl.
What’s more, “Lo had a brain injury, which requires working hard at cognitive skills and regaining full use of her brain function.”
Even more basic tasks have been compromised, her mother reports, thanks to the loss of Lauren’s left hand.
“Losing her hand changes the way she dresses herself, opens her make-up containers (now with her teeth and right hand), and even making her bed.”
“We trust Jesus, but, being human, this is hard … very very hard. Life stopped as we knew it, and changed over night.”
