We don't know anyone, really, who could do 200 crunches in 7 minutes… let alone someone who had a quadruple amputation because of a flesh eating bacteria!
According to Aimee Copeland's dad, she had been doing amazing things in rehab — things that even normal people can't do!
Apparently she completes 400 leg lifts in seven minutes, 200 crunches in seven minutes (with every set of 10 she's required to say a complete sentence), pushups, and planks.
Her goal is complete independence, highlighted by the fact that she was NOT happy when her dad said he wanted to get a van with a lift in it.
Here's what he said:
"She is learning to work around these inconveniences and she is determined that she will prevail. Who am I to tell her any different? Needless to say, the van ain't happening."
"Aimee's focus remains on one thing and one thing only: not being 'handicapped.' If hard work is any indication, I think we can all surmise that she is well on her way toward achieving that goal."
We know she can do it.
She's the most dedicated and determined person we've ever seen — she's got this.
