Copeland's parents told her Thursday doctors want to remove her hands and remaining foot, two weeks after her leg was amputated.
According to her father, Aimee smiled and raised her hands up, carefully examining them then mouthed, "Let's do this."
Aimee's father says his daughter shed no tears or batted an eyelash but he was crying because he is a proud father of an incredibly courageous young lady.
The doctors were worried that if Aimee developed breathing problems and her hands released an infection into her body, she could become septic
A spokeswoman of Augusta Hospital on Saturday said she could not comment on whether Aimee Copeland had undergone surgery to remove her hands and right foot, amputations that Copeland's father had said were pending on Friday.
In an last update by Aimee’s father, Andy Copeland, on the Facebook page he created, “Believe and pray for a miracle to happen for Aimee Copeland.”
There were no updates on the site on Saturday.
The bacteria entered through Copeland's wound, forcing doctors at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center to amputate her left leg at the hip. She remained on a breathing tube until Wednesday, when doctors performed a tracheotomy.
