Rebekah DiMartino was injured in the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013. Since then, the 27-year-old from Texas has been through 17 operations to try to save her severely injured left leg, but she finally decided to have the limb amputated.

However, DiMartino made sure to send her leg out in style, holding a “last supper” for her appendage this weekend, an event well-attended by DiMartino’s (and her leg’s) friends and family.

She continued documenting the rest of her leg’s time up until her surgery Monday.

If you look closely, you can see the smiley face DiMartino drew on her bandage.
