Lauren Scruggs, the fashion blogger who escaped death eight months ago when she walked into a spinning plane propeller at McKinney's Aero Country Airport, made her first media appearance on the Today show on Aug 9, 2012 in London.
Scruggs told Today anchor Savannah Guthrie that she is no longer in pain and is in good spirits after losing her left eye and hand in the accident.
“I’m feeling good,’’ Scruggs said. “I think physically, it’s good that I’m off all my pain meds and all medication and haven’t had pain since January, so that’s a blessing. Emotionally, days are hard sometimes, just accepting the loss of my eye and hand, but it just gets better and I realize God’s in control of my life and there’s a purpose to this story.’’
