Yesterday was the birthday of astronaut Mark Kelly, husband to Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who is recovering in Texas after being shot in January. Kelly has a twin brother, Scott, who coincidentally also had a birthday yesterday. Giffords tweeted birthday wishes to both of them and thanked her hospital for the cake they gave her husband. “Happy Birthday @ShuttleCDRKelly & @StationCDRKelly! Thanks for the cake @houstonhospital,” Giffords tweeted, the first words she has spoken publicly since the shooting.
As always, we send nothing but good wishes to the congresswoman as she continues her apparently quite remarkable recovery. She’s an inspiration and I hope we’ll hear more from her very soon.
Also, that cake looks delicious.
