The blonde beauty had one of her hands amputated and underwent surgery to save the sight in her left eye after walking into the aircraft's spinning blades in Texas on Saturday (03Dec11).

Despite her horrific injuries, Scruggs is determined to get on with her recovery, and she took her first steps since the incident on Wednesday (07Dec11).

A posted message on her website reads, "Lauren walks! This morning... the physical therapist assisted Lauren in walking for the first time.

"Once she got halfway there, she said, '30.' Not sure what she meant, (her family) asked her what that means, she replied, 'Steps!' What a praise, she was counting every step that she took!"

The message adds that her injured eye is still "non-responsive".
