Aimee Copeland preparing for release from hospital

by Winston Jones/Times-Georgian

Aimee Copeland is staying in close touch with her Carrollton friends and often calls and talks for longer than an hour, according to Gary Duke, owner of Sunnyside Cafe where she once worked.

She is expected to be released soon from the Augusta hospital where she has been since early May.

“She sounds strong and in reasonably good spirits,” Duke said Tuesday. “I understand she may be out of the hospital and into rehab within the next week or two.”

Copeland, who has been battling a rare, flesh-eating disease, is preparing to be released from the hospital after nearly two months. Her father, Andy Copeland, told The Associated Press that his 24-year-old daughter plans to transfer Monday from Doctors Hospital in Augusta to an inpatient rehabilitation center. Andy Copeland says she will spend several weeks there learning to move herself after having her left leg, right foot and both hands amputated.
