Former Model Lauren Scruggs in Public for the First Time With Prosthetic Eye







To say Lauren Scruggs has had a tough few months would be an understatement.

But the former model and fashion blogger, who has continued to inspire so many with her positive attitude in the wake of her horrific Dec. 3 accident, remained upbeat as she stepped out in her hometown of Dallas, revealing her prosthetic eye for the first time. 

Scruggs, who lost her left arm and eventually her left eye after she accidentally walked into a plane's propeller, was spotted leaving the gym wearing workout gear, a Dallas Cowboys baseball cap and a jacket that covered her missing left arm.

The 23-year-old blonde was fitted with the new prosthetic eye at the end of January.

"It is beautiful," Lauren's mom, Cheryl, wrote on her blog following the fitting. "Thank you God for providing."

The next step in Lauren's recovery is a prosthetic arm, and while that process is underway, her family continues to try to keep her uplifted.

"We cherish hearing positive words come from Lo's mouth, and look forward to her beautiful smile (which melts our hearts). But we also know that at times she feels like her world is caving in, when she grieves that her life is changed forever," Cheryl wrote Friday. "We experience so many things, all in one day. Good & bad, great & small. But we do contemplate life more. We treasure each moment."

Particularly the moments when Lauren laughs. 

"Lo's humor is back!" Cheryl continued. "We have had some big time belly laughs....and it's so refreshing!"

I bet she was on a cell phone or had headphones in. a boy near me got hit by a train because of that.

I remember them saying it was dark. It was a small plane, she walked the wrong way when they were getting off the plane.

I can relate. I'm pretty accident prone. She looks great.

She looks great I hope she will keep working as a model.

I think it is important to show young girls that even if you are not perfect you can still be beautiful.
