Aimee Copeland Is Home!!

Filed under: InspirationFitnessHealth

Aimee Copeland Home

Finally, Aimee Copeland — just a few months after having four limbs amputated due to necrotizing fasciitis — has returned home.

Before that, she and her family went to a steakhouse for some lunch, and then ended up at her parents' house in Snellville, Georgia, and relaxed with her sister, Paige.

That's beautifully normal!

She then settled into the newly designed wing of her parents' home that was built just for her and donated by a local homebuilder.

Her dad says that she "loves" the 1,956-foot wing that was built for her. It has a living room, bedroom and bathroom along with a fitness room, sunroom, study room and three outdoor areas.

We are SO excited for her, proud, and inspired.

Hopefully now she can get back to everything she was up to before this little interruption!

Aimee Copeland Is Mastering Prosthetics!

Filed under: InspirationFitnessHealthSurgery

Holy hell, you guys!

We JUST mentioned Aimee Copeland's progress a little bit yesterday — like how she's been able to do an amazing amount of exercises as a part of her rehab.

Little did we know, she was already mastering THREE sets of prosthetics, including the hooks where her hands used to be.

For a 24 year old who lost 4 limbs to a flesh eating bacteria, she is super tough, driven, and inspirational.

It's gotta be hard, but we'll be damned if we don't see Aimee reaching her goal sooner than later!

Keep it up, Aimee!

Watch her dad talk about her (above)!

Aimee Copeland Doing 200 Crunches In 7 Minutes!

Filed under: Etc.InspirationHealth

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!

Holy shizz!!

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."


He continued:

"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.

Simply incredible!

Woman Fights Same Flesh Eater As Aimee Copeland

Filed under: HealthScary!

A detroit woman is now fighting for her life against the same flesh eating bacteria that Aimee Copeland had to battle.

Her name is Crystal Spencer, and she's just 33 years old.

She's been hospitalized since June 30, and has already had a part of her midsection removed.

Her husband likened it to the size of a small watermelon.

Here's what he said:

"They only give her a 20 to 30 percent chance to pull out of this, not even to make this. The surgeon keeps going in and cleaning it and cleaning it. But they're saying it could go either way."

One of the scariest parts of this story is that her husband things she contracted the bacteria at a different Detroit hospital, where she had an abscess removed from her leg.

Her husband continued:

"They're saying it's a long road but I'm trying to think for the better that hopefully she does make it. She's alert but she's not to the point where she can talk or really do much. It's just hard at night to do this. I'm keeping my hopes up I'm praying and have family do what they can."

So. Scary.

We hate the idea of stuff like this creeping around hospitals!

It CAN be done, Crystal! It can be beaten!

We believe in you!

Aimee Copeland Leaves Hospital!!

Filed under: InspirationHealth

This is FAB news!

Aimee Copeland, the flesh eating bacteria victim, has just been released from the hospital!

She has been discharged into the care of a rehabilitation center, where she'll be spending the next six weeks learning how to live her new life as a quadruple amputee.

Here's what her dad said:

"We all deal with the emotional aspect everyday, she's going to continue to need our support. She's told us she wants to see us everyday — she continues to recover and well make sure we're there for her. 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 that process has already started."

If anyone can handle it, it's Aimee.

She's been through so much already, and she's been taking it like a champ!

So incredible, so inspiring!

Good luck, Aimee!!
