9. Here's an article with more details:
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/01/11/politics/main...

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is breathing under her own power and generally
"holding her own" in her third day of recovery from a near-fatal gunshot wound,
doctors said Tuesday.

In a press conference at Tucson's University Medical Center, Dr. Peter Rhee
said that the three-term Democratic congresswoman is "progressing as expected"
with "no issues or problems." Both Rhee and neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Lemole
stressed that, despite encouraging signs, her condition remains very serious.

Still, the pace of Giffords' recovery since a gunman opened fire at a public
even Saturday has been remarkable, Lemole said.

"She has no right to look this good, and she does," he said. "We're hopeful."
