Giffords’s Mom: “Daughter Heading to Rehab Friday”, AP

Looks like Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head during an attempted assassination incident on Jan. 8 in Tucson, AZ, will be heading to a rehabilitation center in Houston on Friday, according to her mother.

An upbeat e-mail from U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Gifford’s mother sent to family and friends says the congresswoman is making great progress and will be moved Friday to a rehab center in Texas to continue her recovery.

Gloria Giffords says her daughter can move her limbs on command and has read get-well cards made for her by elementary school students and browsed photos on her husband’s iPhone.

“Every day Gabby improves and shows higher levels of comprehension and complex


ctions,” Giffords wrote in an e-mail obtained by multiple news outlets. “They want to start aggressive rehab immediately and are flying her to Houston facilities Friday.”

I still find it so remarkable that she has been able to defy all odds and make such immense progress in such a short amount of time! Getting shot in the head, surviving, and improving day by day – what an amazing story.
