Not sure if this has been posted, but Gabrielle Gifford's doctor says she's likely to survive. What happened? This is great news! But confusing because I thought she was was dead. But here's to a full recovery!!!



-- Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, 40, was shot in the head and underwent surgery Saturday. Doctors were optimistic of her chances of surviving. "I'm about as optimistic as it can get in this situation," Dr. Peter Rhee of the University Medical Center said Saturday afternoon. He said the next 24 hours will be key for determining the extent of her recovery.

Good news for her, still very confused over media reporting (spiralling between her and 6 others dead, four dead including her, now she's not dead...?). Just wish that there was some good news for the others who got shot.

Still, some good news is better than no good news.

Yeah, she sounds like an actually decent congresswomen, which are hard to come by nowadays. I mean, how many current congressmen/women do you see on a street corner in a meet & greet? Very few. And unguarded? Even fewer. Just to do that (even though it ended in tragedy), shows dedication.

Seeing as the bullet was to the brain, though, even if she does survive, how much of her will?

Hopefully no vital (to life or personality) areas were hit. It would be terrible to go from being an apparently decent congresswoman to being a Phineas Gage (although in Sarah Palin's case, that might be an improvement (sic.)).

Let's hope so. I'm sure due to her status, she'll have the best doctors available.
