AUGUSTA, Ga. -- It's another step in a woman's recovery from a flesh-eating bacteria.

On Monday morning, Doctors Hospital reported Aimee Copeland's condition had improved from "serious" to "good."

The hospital defines "good" as: "Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious and comfortable. Indicators are excellent."

The news comes as three Shepeard Community Blood Center locations in the area hold blood drives in Coepland's honor. You can stop by anytime before 6 p.m. to donate.
