Gabrielle Giffords smiles in newly released photos
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) looked great in the first photos seen of her since she was critically injured by a gunshot to the head. The photos were released to her Facebook page Sunday.
The photos were taken May 17, a day after Giffords witnessed the launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavour with her husband Commander Mark Kelly aboard. She was scheduled to have skull surgery the next day.
