For the first time in 49 days, Aimee Copeland has been able to leave her hospital room… and go outside.
This is WONDERFUL.
Her progression is nothing short of amazing.
Here's what her dad wrote:
"In your mind's eye, you probably are picturing Aimee grabbing a wheelchair and scooting into it by herself and then rolling herself through doorways and down hallways like some superhuman quad amputee. Dispel such notions. All three of us talked while we rolled along and eventually we came to rest near a grove of pine trees. The smile on Aimee's face said that this was the best therapy that she has had in weeks."
A physical therapist had to help Aimee smoothly get into the wheelchair and sit upright. Her mother followed along with water jug to keep her hydrated, as her dad was the one who pushed her outside.
This makes us smile!
We're so happy that things are going the way they are for her! Such courage!
You can do this, Aimee!
