Gabrielle Giffords Released from Rehabilitation Facility
Gabrielle Giffords has been released from the Texas hospital where she has been undergoing rehabilitation since the January 8 shooting in which she was shot in the head.
The 41-year-old Arizona Representative will soon undergo outpatient treatment, according to a statement by TIRR Memorial Hermann (via CNN).
“We are very excited that she has reached the next phase of her rehabilitation and can begin outpatient treatment,” said Dr. Gerard Francisco, the hospital’s chief medical officer.
Last month, a judge ruled that alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner is not competent to stand trial. His next court date is in September.
Earlier this week, photos of a recovering Rep. Giffords were posted on her Facebook page.
