The Houston Chronicle reports that U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was transferred this morning out of the ICU and into the TIRR Memorial Hermann. Her condition has gone from being critical, to good, after being shot in the head on January 8th. What unbelievable progress.

Giffords was being treated for fluid buildup in her brain and was in serious condition at the intensive care unit of Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. But the hospital late Tuesday announced that the Arizona congresswoman had been upgraded to good condition and would be relocated to TIRR.

Police early Wednesday halted traffic in parts of the medical center and escorted Giffords’ ambulance to the rehabilitation center two blocks away.

Crews in hard hats had worked to install a pair of tarps around a covered front entrance to the center, apparently to block visibility of Giffords and her ambulance as she entered. But the congresswoman was moved into the facility from a back entrance that was also out of view.

Memorial-Hermann’s Institute for Rehabilitation and Research is known worldwide for its advances in treating debilitating injuries of all kinds, especially head and brain injuries.
