Woman with flesh-eating disease upgraded to ‘good’
ATLANTA (AP) - Doctors have once again upgraded the condition of a Georgia woman battling a flesh-eating disease.
Hospital officials said Monday that Aimee Copeland’s condition has improved from serious to good, meaning that her vital signs are stable and within normal limits.
The 24-year-old woman developed necrotizing fasciitis after cutting her leg in a fall May 1 from a homemade zip line over a west Georgia river. Her left leg, right foot and both hands have been amputated.
Her father, Andy Copeland, said in a blog post Monday that she was able to leave her hospital room and get outdoors for the first time during her stay at Doctors Hospital in Augusta. Andy Copeland said he pushed his daughter, in a wheelchair, around the outside of the hospital over the weekend.
