Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was awake in her hospital room and recognized her husband, several media outlets reported late Saturday.
Former Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona described the wound Giffords suffered as “devastating,” but would not elaborate, the Fox 11 News reported on its website. Doctors at UMC were cautiously optimistic.
Dr. Peter Rhee said he was “very optimistic” about her recovery chances, the station reported. “I’m about as optimistic as you can get in this situation,” he said.
That is just amazing. Wonderful, awesome, spectacular news.
