Giffords and Kelly Moving Back to Arizona

It’s reported that former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, have decided to move back to Arizona.  This comes a year and a half after she moved to Houston for intensive physical and speech therapy after a gunman shot her in the head at a public event in Tuscon.

The Houston Chronicle reports Giffords will continue her therapy in Tucson, but it won’t be the six to eight hours per day she’d been doing at The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston.

Six people died and 13 people, including Giffords, were wounded during a “Congress On Your Corner” meeting with constituents outside a  Tucson shopping center.

Giffords and Kelly have been living at Kelly’s home near the Johnson Space Center in Houston, but Kelly says it’s time for his wife “to get back to as much of a normal life as possible after this type of catastrophic injury.  Obviously, a big thing for her is to come home.”
