Aimee Copeland, the brave strong woman from Georgia, still not lost hope even after losing her hands, left leg and right foot, all these miseries have been due to a flesh-eating disease.
Latest reports suggest that father of the woman stated that Aimee has refused to take any painkillers, especially morphine before a skin graft.
Andy Copeland wrote in a blog that Aimee hates taking a painkiller during her treatment. He wrote: "Although that drug effectively blocks most of the pain associated with her condition, it makes her groggy and confused and it gives her unpleasant hallucinatory episodes".
Previous reports suggest that it was early May, when this graduate student at the University of West Georgia, was admitted to an Augusta, Ga., hospital in critical condition. Doctors at the hospital reported that at that time, Aimee was admitted, her kidney had failed and even other organs had been adversely damaged.
Moreover, the symptoms, she was showing, suggested that she had been affected by flesh-eating bacteria or technically termed as necrotizing fasciitis. Due to the condition, her system has been drastically destroyed. This Tuesday, doctors treating Aimee declared that her condition has worsened. However, Mr. Copeland affirmed that his daughter is very brave.
