Writing on his Facebook page, Andy Copeland declared Sunday "Aimee Day," adding, "Our baby can talk." No further details were available, but by Monday morning more than 100 well-wishers had posted encouraging comments on his post.
Aimee Copeland, 24, developed necrotizing fasciitis after cutting her leg in a May 1 fall from a homemade zip line over a west Georgia river. Her left leg, other foot and both hands have been amputated.
She began breathing on her own last week and was able to sit up in a chair on Thursday.
