Giffords doing 'remarkably well,' astronaut husband says

(CNN) – The commander of the upcoming space shuttle mission began a pre-launch news conference Thursday by addressing the condition of his wife, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Astronaut Mark Kelly said Giffords, who was shot in the head January 8, is doing "remarkably well."

"She's improving every day, and in the realm of brain injuries," he said, "that is very significant and pretty rare."
