US congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, shot in the head in January, is declared fit enough to attend her husband’s space shuttle launch on Friday.
She gets to see her husband takeoff on one of the last Shuttle missions. I just hope she is up to all the publicity this will entail.
Her progress is remarkable but the sort of injury she has means a very long road back. I’m encouraged by her husband’s comment that her personality is 1005 there as that is one of the more likely consequences of this type of injury.
