An Update On Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaSad Sad

The doctors who are treating U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head at Saturday's terrible tragedy in Arizona, have given a detailed update on how the congresswoman is doing in her recovery.

Dr. Michael Lemole, Jr. says that he is "cautiously optimistic" while Dr. Rhee says that "this so far has been a very good situation" and hopes "it will stay that way."

Giffords is responding and is expected to stay in the hospital for another two to three weeks before beginning the rehabilitative process.

Meanwhile, President Obama has called for a national moment of silence Monday at 11 a.m. EST to honor victims of the shooting.

    I am so glad for this poor woman, and having had brain tumors in the past I wish her well. I know she has a long road ahead of her. I wish all the other families who lost loved ones strength as well. So sad.

    Such a sad tragedy. Can't stop thinking of her and the other victims. :(

    O'Dumbo calling for a moment of prayer for the fallen, but the azzhole waited three days before commenting on the mass murder of soldiers at Ft. Hood, and never a comment about prayer.

    This says it all about the liberal buffoon O'Dingo.

    Millions of us are praying for you Gabrielle Giffords!
    It is time America lowered the rhetoric & start to talking to each other again.

    This is such an unfortunnate tragic incident… our prayers go to the victims and their families…. I just hope people dion't politicize this incident b/c it was committed by one disturbed and depraved person and no one else is to blame but him.

    I don't understand what kind of sick, sick person would do something like this. Especially considering they shot that poor little nine-year-old girl dead. Hopes and prayers to all those affected.

    Re: nycyankeeguy – This is celebrity news - a Congresswoman is involved. Celebs aren't just Hollywood dingbats.

    dragonslayer - grow up - this isn't about PRESIDENT Obama. The crap that you're spewing is part of the problem.

    Good Grief, she was not the only injured! The Media is acting like the congresswoman is the only one that matters, why?

    This left wing stoner should have been stopped sooner. We only have the godless liberals to blame for this.

    When you people say the congresswoman is in your prayers, rather than the other equally important victims, who exactly are you praying to? The same god as Obama…which is no god?

    Re: gerry in sf – But it is political. It was a political figure and a democrat. A democrat who was "targeted' by radical politicians. The political implications cannot be ignored. If gabby was just a random person injured in the shooting your arguement would work but she was the target.

    Re: Desideratum – Actually his political affilliations are more in line with the right wing fringe group the teaparty. Left wingers don't shoot people. Name one liberal that has ever gone out and shot anyone. And why would he shoot one of his own if he was a left winger. Doesn't make sense. Your arguement isn't even remotely logical. You are just spewing the Fox News propaganda. BTW this was my neighborhood store. I live here and I can say that every news organization showed up the next day EXCEPT fox news. Not one single person from that netwrok showed up yet they are the loudest in denouncing any political motivations for this shooting. They don't realize it only makes them look guiltier. I love how they profess to know what it is like to live in Tucson in the political climate we have had to endure here lately when they won't even send 1 reporter to the tragedy site.

    Jared Lee Loughner is a registered independent, and hasn’t voted since 2008. Nothing to do with the Tea Party or Sarah Palin or conservatives.

    “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
    “Get in Their Faces!”
    “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
    “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
    Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
    “Punish your enemies.”
    “I’m itching for a fight.”
    -Barack Obama

    It is a miracle she survived and is doing this well. I hope for another in that she makes a full recovery.

    Re: WatcherOne – Jared's ramblings on his youtube account are directly linked to right wing extremist sites. Quoting those sites almost verbatim. I am skeptical of his voter registration as I have seen 'proof' all over the internet showing him to be Independant, republican, democrat. One local reproter here in Tucson tried to find out the info but found he needed voter number and driver's license number. Doesn't know how anyone else was able to find out Loughner's voter imformation.

    Re: WatcherOne – You seem a little defensive there.
    -
    All of those statements are kinda stupid especially the first one. But the horrific irony of Palin's target map with Giffords in the cross hairs and Sharron Angle's call for "Second Amendment remedies" to "take out" members of Congress should make every American's blood run cold. Yours included.
    So much more I could refer to but…
    Nobody knows for sure what was going through that murdering bastard's mind. What has been made clear that he specifically targeted Giffords and did so because she did not comprehend his twisted anti-government "political views".
