Gabrielle Giffords Able to Speak -- and She Wants Toast

She speaks! Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords reportedly asked for toast with her breakfast this morning.
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords wanted toast for breakfast this morning, and that's reportedly what she verbally told those caring for her at a Houston hospital this morning.

CBS' The Early Show, and Politico have both confirmed that Giffords is speaking again as she continues to make a miraculous recovery after being shot "through the brain" during last month's shooting rampage in Tucson.

Giffords' staffer confirm that the congresswoman is undergoing daily speech therapy as part of her recovery, and that the rehab is going well.

Giffords is currently being treated at the TIRR Medical Hermann in Houston where she began therapy late last month.

Since being shot during the January 8, tragedy, Giffords has moved all of her limbs, opened her eyes, smiled, and with the help of doctors, Giffords has been able to stand on her own two feet.

Throughout her recovery, doctors remained hopeful she would be able to speak -- and now, miraculously, she has.
 
"The doctors say she is recovering at lightning speed considering her injury but they aren't kidding when they say this is a marathon process," Giffords' husband, Mark Kelly, posted on his Facebook wall yesterday.

Kelly also posted several photos of Giffords' hospital room in Houston, which you can see by clicking here.

giffords is a traitor who deserved what she got. Listen up, government strokes, do not usurp your constituents and you will not have to fear for your life. If you want to continue to pander to illegal aliens then you should be prepared for a negative outcome when US CITIZENS finally have had enough. You work for CITIZENS, you do NOT work for illegal invaders. That traitor judge got what he deserved too. You government strokes swore an oath to protect citizens. Fulfill your oathe or you will be removed from your position of power. Its that simple.

Perhaps this would be a chance to try a new treatment for brain injury with psychotropic drugs which are shown to improve brain function (Ibogaine being one).

I would think she'd sound a bit naisally with that 9mm hole in her forehead, at least the last one did just sayin.

Please consider your choice of words: "miraculous" and "miraculously." Ms. Giffords is a tough fighter who is receiving excellent medical care, and she seems to be calling on her strengths to battle her way back. This is human determination, not godly intervention. Where is the "miracle?" Where was this miracle provider on the day she and those 18 other people got shot?
