Mark Kelly: Gabrielle Giffords "Doing Remarkably Well"

Some good news from Gabrielle Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly: the astronaut said at a press conference Thursday that his wife is beginning to walk and talk and “improving every day.” Kelly will command the Shuttle Endeavour that takes off April 19, and he said they are awaiting final approval from Giffords’ doctors to see if she can attend the ceremony. He said he visits his wife every morning at the Houston rehab facility where she is recovering before he heads to NASA for training, and then he goes to the hospital in the evening. But he had a somber note to add: Kelly said Giffords is starting to comprehend and cope with the shooting that left six dead and a dozen more injured. He said she does not remember the shooting.
