This is INcredible!
Aimee Copeland is a fighter — it's only been a short amount of time since she had several extremities amputated, and only days since she's been able to breathe on her own.
Yet, she can now sit up… for hours on end!
They had originally expected an hour tops, but she lasted 5.
Here's what her dad said:
"When the doctors put Aimee up in that chair, their expectations were to give her an hour. Five hours later, Aimee decided it was time to lie down. Had she been running an Olympic marathon, I think Aimee would have experienced a record-breaking, gold-medal moment."
We're so happy to hear this! Aimee sounds like an incredible person with an incredible will!
We hope you continue to get better, Aimee!
