May 11, 2012 journal, Aimee Copeland contracted the flesh eating bacteria Aeromonas hydrophila from a deep cut in her left leg calf when she fell in the Little Tallapoosa River. "Just last month, she had a full and active life. Aimee was pursuing her master's degree in psychology, with a focus on eco-psychology -- the idea that harmonizing with nature can be a powerful tool in ensuring one's psychological health and vitality. On May 1, she and some friends were out near the Little Tallapoosa River, about 50 miles west of Atlanta, Georgia when she grabbed onto a homemade zip line, her family has said. It snapped. That led to a gash in her left calf, and ultimately it took 22 staples to close the wound, according to CNN affiliate WSB. Athough she didn't know it at the time, it was because of that cut that Aimee Copeland contracted the flesh-devouring bacteria, Aeromonas hydrophila. Dr. Buddy Creech, an assistant professor of pediatric infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University, said that Aeromonas hydrophila -- which is "remarkably common in the water and in the environment" -- is one of many bacteria that can cause a flesh-eating process. "When it gets into those deeper tissues, it has a remarkable ability to destroy the tissues that surround it in sort of this hunt for nutrition," Creech said. "When it does that, those tissues die, and you see the inflammation and the swelling and the destruction that can be very difficult to control." Most humans are affected by these bacteria by swallowing them, resulting in diarrhea. Aimee Copeland's case was much more uncommon, in that her wound got "infected and the infection (ran) wild," explained Creech. The pain continued for Aimee after her accident and, on May 4, a friend took her to an emergency room where she was diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis and flown to Augusta for surgery. She went into cardiac arrest after being removed from the operating table, but was resuscitated, CNN affiliate WGCL reported. It was then, Andy Copeland recalled on his Facebook page, that he was "told that Aimee might not survive the night." She did survive, though surgeries cost her the leg and part of her abdomen. A post Saturday on a blog set up by the University of West Georgia psychology department said more operations are coming: "Aimee will suffer the loss of her fingers, however, physicians have hope of bringing life back to the palms of her hands, which could allow her the muscle control to use helpful prosthetics." At one point her lungs "required 100% pure oxygen to be fed to her through a respirator," as the bacteria ravaged her body, her father wrote. By Sunday, she had improved significantly to 33% -- just 12 percentage points shy of 21%, the level of oxygen in air around us. If and when it gets to that point, she can be taken off the respirator. And her family can mark that moment, Aimee Day, on their collective calendar to celebrate this year and every year after. For now, Andy Copeland is busy standing by, conversing with medical staff and expressing appreciation for his "amazingly resilient" daughter, as well as for the medical staff, friends and complete strangers who have shown their support. And the entire family is staying hopeful, fueled in part by the remarkable progress they've seen so far. "The words I hear from the medical professionals to describe Aimee's continued recovery are 'astonishing,' 'incredible,' 'confounding,' 'mind-boggling' and 'unbelievable,'" Andy Copeland wrote Saturday on Facebook. "All those are fitting words. My favorite word is 'miracle.'"CNN Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it. makes one rich. Hebrew "ta-ashir" in the future tense. And He adds no sorrow with it. The word for "sorrow" here is "etsev". Rabbi Shimshon Rafael Hirsch says that etsev is from a root connoting hold back, renounce. In colloquial Hebrew words from this root such "atsavim" means nerves, "atsbani" irritable. As a verb "la-atzav" means to form, to give shape to. In the Bible "atsavim" connotes idols. Hosea craft Ephraim is joined to idols, Let him alone. "Ephraim is joined to idols" in Hebrew, "Havur [Union] Etzavim of Idols Ephraim" which has a double meaning also implying "Ephraim is a union of idols." The Rabbis (Midrash Tanchuma) said that the verse hinted at Ephraim being unified even though they were idolaters. By virtue of this unity (say the Sages) he is still formidable, "LET HIM ALONE." Anyway, Proverbs 10:22 says that God gives riches and when HE does there is no extra attachment with them. There is no price to pay, at least nothing we would not be prepared for. This is unlike the favors and benefits bestowed by human beings that sometimes come with strings attached. Alternately it is unlike the wages of sin that often take out of us in our health or in the welfare of our dear ones or in other ways something we would not have wanted. [Proverbs 10:23] To do evil is like sport to a fool, But a man of understanding has wisdom. Reprobates full of lust sometimes chortle with joy over the prospect of doing what should not be done. A man of understanding knows it is not worth it. He also understands that the best policy is a good one, good for others and good for himself. This is wisdom. Proverbs 10:24 "The fear of the wicked will come upon him, And the desire of the righteous will be granted. The wicked are afraid of the unknown just like all of us to some degree at some time. A wicked person may actually bring what he fears most upon himself. A person who wants something for good reasons will often receive it if he continues to want it and works towards it".
