During Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' therapy after suffering from severe brain injury from a gun shot wound, she was shown several photographs of famous people and was asked what she knew about them.
When she was shown a pic of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gabby responded with this:
"Messin' around. Babies"!
Ha! That's incredible!
She was shot in January and Arnold's baby momma scandal came out in May of this year. By the time she had her therapy sessions, she did watch some news footage about the scandal, but the fact that it could register so clearly for her is pretty amazing. His story obviously made quite the impact on her!
In her new book Gabby, co-written by her husband Mark Kelly, she also tells of the story that when her family asked her what had happened to her, she told them:
"Shot. Shocked. Scary."
In the end, she writes:
"I will get stronger. I will return."
She did get stronger and is still getting stronger each and every day. We're so proud of her and are amazed at how far she's come.
And we're sure Arnold is a little embarrassed too!
