UPDATE: Team Tina posted this message on Jan. 7 regarding EY accountant Tina Frost’s most recent surgery last Friday:
We want to thank everyone for all your thoughts, good wishes and prayers and to let you know that Tina walked out of the hospital today after 5 days and is recovering here in Crofton with Austin, Craig and Mary.
She is a real trooper, and still in a lot of pain and a lot of swelling and bruising, but we all know this is a step in the right direction. We go back to the hospital later this week to remove a vacuum wrap they left on to help heal the arm where they took the tissue and blood vessels. The doctors were very happy with the tissue transfer and we’re optimistic it will heal well!
Since our last post about Tina on Jan. 3 (see below), an additional $760 was donated to her GoFundMe page, bringing the current total of money raised for her medical expenses and recovery to $622,622.
Team Tina said in an update on Jan. 2 that EY accountant Tina Frost will be in surgery for most of today in Baltimore as doctors continue to repair the area around her right eye that was severely injured in the horrific 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas.
We would like to let everyone know that Tina will be undergoing a rather extensive microvascular free tissue transfer surgery tomorrow at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. They will be taking blood vessels from her arm and grafting skin from her wrist to place on the eyelid area. They will replace that skin with a graft from the underside of her arm. The surgery is expected to be between 8-10 hours with at least 3 days in the hospital.
Please keep Tina in your thoughts and prayers for strength, a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
Team Tina hopes you had a wonderful Holiday Season!
A native of Crofton, MD, Tina and her boyfriend, Austin Hughes, drove from San Diego to the Las Vegas Strip to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival outdoor country music concert with friends on Oct. 1, 2017.
When the shooting erupted from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, a single bullet struck Tina in the forehead, piercing the frontal lobes of her brain before ricocheting and landing in her right eye. She was in a coma for about two weeks.
Following the shooting, doctors removed Tina’s right eye and took a section of her skull to remove bullet fragments and allow her brain to heal. She has undergone numerous surgeries in the two years since she was shot.
As of this morning, a GoFundMe page for Tina has raised $621,862, which will be put toward her medical expenses and recovery.
