The Missouri City, TX, police officer shot by a suspect over the weekend has a long road to recovery ahead.

Officer Crystal Sepulveda, 29, remains in the hospital, but her spirits remain high even after being shot multiple times on Saturday, KHOU reports.

Sepulveda was shot while pursuing a carjacking suspect, police report.

Chief Michael Berezin said Sepulveda was shot in the face, left calf and left toe. The bullet that hit her in the face shattered her cheek and exited through her ear. She recently underwent reconstructive surgery.
