You may have read about Aimee Copeland back in May of 2012, when she contracted Necrotizing Fasciitis (NF) from an injury involving a homemade zip line. She suffered overwhelming sepsis and multiple amputations. Here is a very encouraging and inspiring update: The Evolution of Aimee Copeland | Emory Medicine Magazine | Emory University.
Actually, it’s a fairly detailed story that covers different aspects of her experience, focusing on what it’s like to live a different sort of life, post-NF. There’s a bit of science here, too, which points to the benefits of living in these times, when victims of devastating events can return to a normal life. Of course, as NF survivors know, it’s always a different sort of “normal.”
