Fort Hood: How the Injured Are Coping and Recovering

While the injured were in the good hands of the hospital staff at Darnall Army Medical Center, family members waited anxiously at home to hear from their loved ones.

Spc. Dayna Ferguson was shot four times at close range and curled up in a chair to hide from the shooter. Ferguson told ABC News that the shooter shot her in her leg and arm and then moved on to his next victim.

Hours later, Ferguson's parents learned their daughter had survived.

Maj. Randy Royer is another soldier who said he feels lucky to be alive, after he was shot in the leg and the arm but was dragged to safety by a stranger while they were under fire.

Royer said he is searching for the woman to thank her.

"She pulled me into the cubby -- when a lot of the stuff was going on," Royer said. "She probably saved my life."

There is an abudance of heroes at Fort Hood -- and the accolades for the staff at Darnall Army Medical Center are echoed by many.

"It's amazing," Martin said. "The staff here helped me with everything. They are waiting on me like a newborn baby."
