Doctor: Giffords looking ‘spectacular’, pieces of her skull frozen
San Francisco residents are seeing local headlines still dealing with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Giffords is connected to the San Francisco Bay Area because one of the attendees, Susan Hileman, had previously lived in Tiburon in the San Francisco Bay Area. See more on that article and that connection to the San Francisco Bay Area and little Christina Taylor Green here.
Giffords was moved yesterday from her Tucson hospital and is now safely in a Houston hospital, according to CNN
The new hospital is where Giffords will undergo rehabilitative treatment and she will be closer to her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly (see article here on what Mark Kelly says)

One Tucson doctor told press: “I’m very pleased to bring the news that the transfer from the University Medical Center in Tucson to Memorial Hermann Hospital here went flawlessly,” he said.
Giffords was given a short examination by Dr. Dong Kim from the Houston hospital and he reported that Giffords appeared “spectacular,” according to CNN.
He is cautious, however, and advises “There are varying stages of what we call paralysis or weakness” on her right side.
“We really think over the next few months she’s going to do remarkably well,” he continued. “There’s no question that she is aware of what’s happening.”
Pieces of Giffords’ skull, which were previously removed and frozen, remain frozen still and it’s possible they may not be surgically returned to Giffords head for several weeks, said her doctors, according to the Daily Beast.
