According to doctors, it is highly possible that Rep Gabrielle Giffords will be removed from the breathing tube during the course of the day.

Reports say that she can move her legs and is able to sit up. Giffords is responding to simple commands and caretakers claim that the progress she shows is miraculous.

Dr. Michael Lemole Jr. told the press that miracles do happen daily and he hinted that Gabrielle’s situation was a miracle.

Mark Kelly, Giffords’ husband, went through mixed emotions during the day. His wife is now making progress but he also went to the funeral of Christina-Taylor Green, the youngest victim of the shooting. She was only 9 years old.

19 people died in the Arizona shooting. Dorwan Stoddard, 76, was among them but his story will live on in the memory of his wife, Mavy. She declared that her husband saved her life after sacrificing himself to shield her.
