Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Recovering & Looks Hopeful!

Its so good to know that even after such an event that occurred this weekend, that there is still something to smile about! Gunman Jared Lee Loughner attempted to assassinate the AZ Rep. over the weekend in a violent shooting spree in AZ. Loughner didnt succeed in killing Giffords, but he did take the lives of a nine year old girl and a federal judge.

The good news here if you can find it, is that the Congresswoman and target of the shoot out is recovering & breathing on her own after a gunshot wound to the head.

According to Dr. Michael Lemole Jr., chief of neurosurgery at University Medical Center, she is breathing on her own and following commands, he says:
"Her status is the same as it was yesterday. She's still following simple commands..This is where we constantly say it's week to week, month to month. I know everyone wants new results every day but as long as we don't backslide and as long as she holds her own, that's good. That keeps us hopeful. We have to play this according to her timeline, not ours."
I am glad to have some good news to report in this situation. My prayers are still going up for the victims of this shooting as well as the family of the suspect. This has to be hard for them too!
