Ariz. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords makes incredible progress in recovery

Posted: Updated:

ARIZONA (AP)- Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is making incredible progress in her recovery. So much so, doctors say she may be able to travel to Florida to watch her husband's shuttle launch next month.

Officials say in the last month she's gone from mouthing words to speaking sentences, even walking with assistance.

Giffords was shot in the head January 8th during a political event in Tucson. Six people were killed and 12 others were wounded in the shooting spree in Tucson.

The suspect, 22-year-old Jared Loughner, has pleaded not guilty in federal court.
