WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a statement issued by C-B-S, she says she is getting around on crutches and can sometimes manage with a cane. But, she says, "It's not pretty."

Dozier and her camera crew were embedded with the U-S army in Baghdad when a roadside bomb exploded near their vehicle. The blast killed both members of her crew, as well as an Army captain and their Iraqi translator.

Dozier suffered wounds to her head, legs and lower body. Since the incident she has undergone at least a dozen surgeries and may face more. But her rehabilitation can now be done on an outpatient basis.

Dozier says the cards and e-mails she has received from well-wishers make her feel like she has ten-thousand guardian angels.
