Giffords could be released from hospital in days or weeks, doctor says

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords continues to make progress in her recovery, with doctors estimating she could be released from the hospital as soon as “days to weeks,” CNN reports. Giffords, who was wounded in the January 8 mass shooting in Arizona, underwent a successful procedure Saturday to repair a fracture in the roof of her right eye socket, doctors said on Monday. The congresswoman tolerated the two-hour, minor operation well, and is “back at that same baseline where she was before surgery,” said Dr. Michael Lemole, chief of neurosurgery at University Medical Center.
