The miraculous recovery of Aimee Copeland from a horrible case of flesh-eating bacteria continues tonight.
Doctors have upgraded her condition from serious to good, and Aimee is scheduled to leave the hospital next Monday. The 24-year-old has spent more than seven weeks fighting a bacteria called necrotizing fasciitis, losing one leg, the other foot, and both of her hands. She contracted the bacteria after falling off a zipline over a river in Alabama and cutting her leg.
Doctors gave her a 1 percent chance of survival back in May, but just this week she made her first trip outside. Her father Andy Copeland and sister Paige Copeland are OutFront tonight to talk about the road ahead.
necrotising fasciitis responds to hyperbaric oxygen. I have saved a leg(he cut his foot in the muddy Sacramento) and a penis with hyperbaric O2. OutFront should find out if it was offered. If not, why not? Lets save the next unfortunate.
