Aimee Copeland Update

After being attacked by a flesh-eating virus, Aimee is leaving the hospital and heading to an inpatient rehabilitation facility. She even hopes to join her classmates at a graduation ceremony later this year!

Just two months after a flesh-eating infection claimed Aimee Copeland‘s left leg, right foot and both hands following a zip-lining accident, the 24-year-old University of West Georgia student is making strides towards a full recovery!

Aimee has been in an Augusta, GA hospital since her May 1 accident, but she was recently transferred to an inpatient rehabilitation facility, where she will remain for the next six to eight weeks. “We all deal with the emotional aspect everyday, she’s going to continue to need our support,” her father, Andy Copeland revealed during the July 3 episode of Today. “She’s told us she wants to see us every day — she continues to recover, and we will make sure we’re there for her.”

Although excited to leave the hospital for the first time in months, Aimee’s mother, Donna Copeland, said, “It didn’t take long till she was out like a light!” During her stint in rehab, Aimee will need to re-learn the basic skills that we all take for granted.

“Whatever she needs, whether it’s to go to the bathroom, to fix something to eat, she just has to relearn to have some mobility in her life again,” Andy said, adding “that process has already started.”

But her ultimate goal is to be able to walk with her class at her graduation ceremony later this year. “I believe when you have the power of prayer behind you, I think anything’s possible,” he added.

We wish Aimee a speedy recovery!
