BALTIMORE, Maryland- A Las Vegas massacre shooting victim that was in a coma for more than a week has taken her first steps since the incident that claimed nearly 60 lives and wounded over 500.
An update published on Friday to the GoFundMe page established for Arundel High School graduate Tina Frost said she is responsive and has taken three steps to a chair and three steps back to the bed with help from nurses.
“She opens her left eye just a lil and looks all around the room at us, taps her feet whenever music is playing, continues to squeeze our hands, and even gives Austin a thumb’s up when asked. She sometimes taps to music and also took her first steps today with the assistance of the nurses – 3 steps to the chair and 3 steps back to the bed. “
According to WBAL, Frost, 27, graduated from Arundel High School in 2008 and is an accountant with Ernst and Young in San Diego. Frost and her boyfriend traveled from California to Las Vegas with a group of friends for the Route 91 country music festival. Frost was the only person in their nine-person group to get shot. She was wounded in the right eye.
This was posted following initial surgery:
“Tina is out of surgery and her vitals are stable. They removed her right eye, where the bullet was lodged, and there is an implant there now to keep the space open. She has sight in her left eye but will never see from the right again. They took out a bone from her forehead to allow the brain room to swell, that will stay out for a few months. She’s in a coma and on a ventilator, she cannot breathe on her own. She’s critically stable in ICU for at least a week. Over the next few days, they’re going to see how she responds to simulation, but until then, we won’t know how bad the brain damage is.”
Frost’s sister has set up an email account for people to send audio messages and music that’s uplifting for them to play for her: SmileyT123frosty@gmail.com
