Gabrielle Giffords’ First Hospital Photos Released


Last night Gabrielle Giffords’ office released photos of the wounded Arizona Congresswoman in her hospital room at the University Medical Center. The photos were reportedly taken on Sunday, January 9. In each, she holds the hand of her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly.

Neither photo shows Giffords’ face, due to the severity of her head injuries. As we learned yesterday, she’s able to breathe on her own, and doctors believe she has a 101 percent chance of survival.

Here’s a close-up of Kelly holding her hand.
