'Let's do this': Aimee Copeland did not cry when her father told her she would have to have her remaining foot and fingers amputated
A young Georgia woman fighting a flesh-eating bacterial infection is in critical condition at Augusta Hospital.
Aimee Copeland had both her hands and her one remaining foot amputated in a major operation on Saturday.
Surgeons had previously amputated the 24-year-old's left leg at the hip.
'All I can say is Aimee is still in critical condition,' hospital spokeswoman Barclay Bishop said.
Prayers and messages of support have poured in for Copeland on a Facebook page where her father, Andy Copeland, has chronicled her struggle.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper said the family had been overwhelmed by public interest and had asked for privacy.
When Ms Copeland learned she would lose her hands and remaining foot, and responded by saying 'Let's do this'.
Ms Copeland's father recounted the conversation in an update on his Facebook page yesterday.
Mr Copeland wrote about the difficult talk he had a day earlier with his daughter after the 24-year-old woman contracted the bacteria after an accident.
He said she 'shed no tears, she never batted an eyelash. I was crying because I am a proud father of an incredibly courageous young lady', Andy Copeland wrote.
