A Question About Giffords
The news about Congresswoman movement to a rehabilitation center is great news. Considering that she was shot in the head just two weeks ago, the fact that she is able to leave the hospital is near miraculous.
I have heard reports of her using an iPad to pick out colors, responding to commands, and even standing and walking by herself (exact;y how unaided in unclear). However, the one thing that is always glaringly absent (to me, anyway) is any mention in stories about her recovery of her speaking (or, for that matter initiating communication in any way).
Has anyone heard any reports of her speaking?
While I am not trying to throw a wet blanket on the good news concerning her recovery to date, I also wondering as to her exact state, so I am wondering if there is further information that I have missed. However, I fear that all the lack of talk about talking may indicate that she is still a long way from full recovery (even though I have heard references to that possibility).
