This is truly unbelievable news.

Merely a week ago, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords had managed to open her eyes - after being a victim in the horiffic Tuscon shootings - and now, we're thrilled to report today that she has been able to stand on her own two feet, with some assistance!

The University Medical Center's Dr. Peter Rhee also revealed that the Congresswoman was also able to finally leave her bed this morning, and sat in a chair by her room's window while she looked out at the Catalina Mountains.

While he wouldn't confirm the reports that Giffords will be moved to the TIRR Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation Hospital in Houston on Friday, Rhee did admit that she's already started an "aggressive rehab" regimen.

Meanwhile, her husband, Mark Kelly, announced:

"I am extremely hopeful at the signs of recovery that my wife has made since the shooting. The team of doctors and nurses at UMC has stabilized her to the point of being ready to move to the rehabilitation phase. Their goal - and our goal - has been to provide Gabby with the best care possible."

We are SO inspired by this woman's resilience throughout this entire ordeal.

Stay strong, bb, and keep on fighting!

We believe in you!

    I live in AZ so it's nice to hear GOOD news come out of my state. Right now Governor Jan Brewer is trying to take away health care for 300,000 poor Arizonians and once she gets that she's going after cuts for schools. HOW this woman got elected in beyond me. I will never understand the mind of a Republican.

    Thank goodness.
    And Jan Brewer got in because the young people did not get out and vote. If you are a young person make sure you VOTE. The next election will depend on you guys. Tell your friends. The youth vote could have really made a difference in this state. Instead only the older republican retirees voted in the last election and look where that got us as a state.
