(FOX19) -

A Ft. Thomas woman shot by her estranged husband before he turned the gun on himself is thanking her friends and family for their continuous support during her recovery.

Alisha Waters, 31, uploaded a video on YouTube which she recorded from her hospital bed. Waters was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and later transferred to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta following the Aug. 6 shooting.

Through tearful words, Waters' offers this message:  

"To my family that's been beside me since day one, the friends that have never let me down and to the ones that I've met along the way, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you've done for me. Words cannot express what it means to me to have the people that I have in my life. I hope you know how much you are valued and loved. I'm getting a little stronger each day. I'm doing what I gotta do to get out of here to come home to my family and friends. From the bottom of my heart, I love you all. Thank you very much, and I'll see you soon. I love you."

Doctors told her family she may never walk again. A video uploaded to YouTube in September showed Waters moving her arm.

While getting into the elevator at her workplace, police said Waters was shot once in the neck, once in the leg and three times in the abdomen. The shooter, D.J. Mathis, then turned the gun on himself and died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
