Giffords regains speech

Arizona congresswoman who was shot making progress toward recovery

Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has been speaking in the past few days, her first words after she was shot in the head while meeting constituents a rally in Tucson. A month after the shooting spree that killed six people, including a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge, Giffords has re-acquired her appetite, and reportedly asked for toast one morning at breakfast. It’s another important stepping stone on her path to recovery, but Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly warned in a Facebook post that doctors “aren’t kidding when they say this is a marathon process.”
