Despite the amazing recovery road Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been traveling, she is still having trouble forming words, sentences and thoughts. She's been using hand gestures and facial expressions to the best of her ability to fill the gaps.
We say after being shot in the head, perhaps we should be giving her a little bit more time before we start discussing whether or not she'll be back. Apparently there is an actual timeframe to decide, and it's by May of next year, so let's wait a bit before we jump to conclusions.
While we understand that her position needs to be filled past a temporary status, we still have tons of hope for her and the amount of recovery she'll be able to accomplish!
Our thoughts are with her!
