An update posted Friday on the family's GoFundMe page celebrated the good news in her recovery: Frost has emerged from her coma and has taken a few steps with assistance. Frost's family says she has been able to breathe for awhile without assistance.

Dr. Keith Blum, who treated Frost, told The Las Vegas Review-Journal that there's a 90 percent mortality rate for people shot in the head. Frost underwent a very delicate, three-hour surgery, and some bullet fragments remain in her brain. While Frost lost her right eye and has a long road of recovery ahead of her, she continues to amaze her doctors and family, according to the family’s GoFundMe page.
