Tina Frost, a Maryland native who was among the injured in the Las Vegas shooting massacre, is continuing to improve according to updates her family is providing through a Go Fund Me page set up for her.

Tina had initially been in a coma after losing an eye. She graduated from Anne Arundel County High School in 2008.

Update from Tina's family: 

10-19. Tina's second surgery was a success. The surgeons took tissue from the back of her scalp after peeling back the scalp to seal up the brain barrier and are hopeful there won't be further drainage from her injury. The craniofacial (sp?) surgeon also went through her mouth and used a titanium plate to stabilize the bone around her nose and eye. She needs to be monitored to check for drainage for the next 24 to 48 hours, but again they're hopeful there won't be anything significant. They were glad that they had the surgery today so they could see everything and get an overall picture. Tina will be having several more surgeries for the reconstruction and there are many more steps involved over the next weeks and months. On another note, Tina took 163 steps yesterday, smiles sometimes, hugs her dad and puckers her lips for Austin! Occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy are all working with Tina and she is just a true warrior! The next few days will be recovery and hanging out!
