Gabrielle Giffords released from the hospital


Some good news–Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who had been hospitalized after a near fatal gunshot wound to the head 5 months ago, was discharged from TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital. She will continue her daily rehabilitation along with around-the-clock home medical care, but according to her doctor’s she has recovered well and is steadily improving. It can sometimes be so hard to find the positive in such appalling and meaningless violence and tragedy, but her recovery is nothing short of a miracle, a team of dedicated doctors and a testament to her strength and courage.
