In this Monday, July 2, 2012 file photo provided by Andy Copeland, Aimee Copeland smiles as she leaves a hospital in Augusta Ga., headed for an inpatient rehabilitation clinic. On Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012, after more than three months in the hospital and a rehabilitation clinic, Copeland, who survived a rare fleshing-eating disease but had both her hands, her left leg and her right foot amputated, returned home to a family dinner and a wheelchair-accessible house now equipped with an exercise room and private elevator.
