(CNN) – U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords plans to attend the launch of the space shuttle Endeavour next month - a little more than three months after she was shot in the head outside a Tucson, Arizona, supermarket - her spokesman said.
Giffords' husband, Capt. Mark Kelly, will command the shuttle. After spending the days after the shooting at his wife's hospital bedside, he decided in February that would continue his assignment as the mission commander. At the time, Giffords' spokesman C.J. Karamargin said the Arizona Democrat "fully understands" that her husband is flying the shuttle and supports his decision.
It's good to hear she's doing so well! Godspeed to both of them!
Wow – this is great news and a sign she is recovering quickly. Mrs. Giffords – I know you still have a long way to go but hang in there!!! Get (really) Well Soon!!!
