We cannot believe what a miraculous recovery she has made!

Check out these new photos just released of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the first taken since she was HOriffically shot in the head during a mass shooting in January (above)!

She looks absolutely wonderful!

And although she's still struggling to communicate, her Chief of Staff Pia Carusone recently said of her progress:

"With Gabby, what we've been able to infer and what we believe is that her comprehension is very good. I don't know about percentage-wise or not, but it's close to normal, if not normal."

Just remarkable, and such an inspiration!

We know this road to recovery has certainly been a long one for her, and we continue to wish her all the best as she overcomes the obstacles so unfairly put in front of her!

We're thinking of you, gurl! Keep up the good fight!

Tucson Hero To Spend Birthday At State Of The Union With Michelle Obama

obamas to honor tucson hero

What a lovely gesture to make for this brave, young man!

Daniel Hernandez Jr., an intern for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, will sit next to Michelle Obama at tomorrow's State of the Union, which happens to be on his birthday.

The young man showed SUCH bravery when he rushed to Congresswoman Gifford's aid during the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona two weeks ago.

Here's what he had to say about his opportunity to attend the State of the Union on his birthday:

"I'm both honored and excited to have the opportunity to travel to our nation's Capitol for a once in a lifetime event. Also the chance to bring my father along for his first trip to Washington, D.C. The State of the Union is a pivotal moment because it is our opportunity to find where we are and where we will be going as a nation in this upcoming year."

We hope it's a wonderful trip, Daniel! You deserve it!

…And Happy Birthday in advance!

Wow. We are amazed at her unbelievable progress.

She's certainly an inspiration to us all.

Congresswoman Giffords Now Standing On Her Own Two Feet!

Filed under: PolitikInspiration

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!
