First Photos Of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Released 

Politisite is reporting that Congresswoman Giffords will be leaving the Rehabilitation Hospital in Houston and return home for Outpatient Rehab a week from now.  Additionally, two photos where released if a Smiling Giffords.

The first photos of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since she was shot in the head in a mass shooting in Tucson about five months ago were released early Sunday.

The photos appeared on her Facebook page.

Both pictures show the congresswoman outside. In one she is alone and smiling at the camera, her hair trimmed short with the skin on the side of her head slightly discolored but with no clear sign of any scarring. In the other, she is sitting with a woman.

Giffords has been in a Houston rehab facility since two weeks after the Jan. 8 shooting. Six people were killed and 13 were injured, including Giffords.

Since the shooting, the only time the public has gotten a glimpse of Giffords was April 27 as she boarded a plane to Florida to watch astronaut husband Mark Kelly launch into space. The grainy footage, taken from afar, showed Giffords slowly but purposefully walk up the airplane’s stairs.

The newly released photos provide a much clearer image.
