HOUSTON – Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is able to speak: She asked for toast at breakfast one recent morning.
Her ability to say even just a word, a month after being shot in the head, pleased her family, friends and doctors. It may also provide valuable clues about the condition of her injured brain.
"We're elated at this," said her spokesman C.J. Karamargin, who added that she is speaking "more and more." "We always knew Gabby is a fighter and that she's not going to let this thing win. And you know, every day is proof of that."
I honestly have no words to say about this other than I wish her and her family the very best and I pray for full recovery. She seems to be on that road.
