HOUSTON – Images of a smiling Rep. Gabrielle Giffords were posted early Sunday on her Facebook page, two photos that show her with shorter hair but few other signs of the gunshot wound to the head that she suffered five months ago.
It appears she may have survived with most -if not all - of her mental capabilities intact, nothing short of a miracle. Unknown by the general public at this time is whether her vocal functions have recovered.
The obvious indentation at her left temple is where a portion of her skull was removed to allow for brain swelling. By the time you read this, they will have replaced that portion of her skull.
