HAMILTON, Ohio - A Hamilton woman is "99 percent healed" from a deep, open wound in her stomach that initially her husband had to care for by himself.
 
The I-Team first told you about Linda and Roger Conrad in May . Her government insurance wouldn't pay for home health care and forced her discharge after a series of stomach surgeries with the wound still gaping open.
 
Fort Hamilton Hospital stepped forward and provided Linda free medical care, including a special medical device that speeded the healing of the wound from the six months it would have taken on its own to just eight weeks.
 
Watch the video above to see the medical progress.
