ATLANTA (June 25, 2012)—Aimee Copeland, the Georgia coed who’s battling a flesh-destroying infection, has reached another milestone, as doctors have again upgraded her condition from serious to good.
Hospital officials announced the improvement Monday in Augusta, Ga.
Her father, Andy Copeland, says in a blog post 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.
Copeland, 24, 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, other foot and both hands have been amputated.
