Along with many Americans, I feel a personal connection with Gabrielle Giffords, and I’m eager for updates on her recovery. We celebrate every step forward she makes, thankful that her husband Mark Kelly is standing with her on her prolonged journey toward healing and wholeness.

HOUSTON — Police stood guard as an ambulance took Rep. Gabrielle Giffords from intensive care to a rehabilitation hospital on Wednesday, an encouraging step that came after doctors upgraded her condition from serious to good and removed a tube that was draining fluid from her head.
Doctors at Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center Hospital determined the Arizona congresswoman was healthy enough to move to nearby TIRR Memorial Hermann, where she will continue her rehabilitation work.
