‘Christmas Miracle': Vegas Shooting Victim Tina Frost Is Home for Holidays; Father Thankful

The father of Tina Frost, the Maryland native who was shot during the Las Vegas massacre, says he is grateful she's home for the holidays.

"It is a Christmas miracle," Rich Frost told News4.

Tina Frost is receiving outpatient care while she's home with her family in Anne Arundel County.

"It’s a struggle. It’s an adjustment because she has to get used to non-hospital life and she's not ready to be out in public," Rich Frost said Thursday night at a fundraiser for his daughter at Grotto Pizza in Gambrills, Maryland.

"She had a good day today, so that’s always a plus," he said.

Tina "will have several days off from all of the doctors, nurses, therapists, dieticians, technicians and everyone else who knocks on her door 'every five minutes,'” her family said earlier in the week on a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $600,000 for Frost.

She was among the hundreds of people shot at a concert in Las Vegas Oct. 1. The attack was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, killing 58 people and injuring more than 500.

Frost’s boyfriend carried her from the scene of the shooting to a truck. The truck’s driver rushed Frost to a hospital, where doctors had to remove a bullet, which was lodged into her right eye, to save her life.

Since the shooting, Frost has been trying to redevelop her motor skills -- practicing throwing and kicking a rubber ball, baking cookies and painting her eye patch. She took her first steps since the shooting about a month ago.

She moved to the rehabilitation center from Johns Hopkins Nov. 28. Frost's boyfriend picked her up there Friday.
