In a late afternoon update Sunday, a spokeswoman for Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center issued a release saying: “The congresswoman’s condition is improving daily. Her rehabilitation will continue in the Neuro ICU until her physicians determine she is ready for transfer to TIRR Memorial Hermann.”

Sunday morning, her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, tweeted , “Gabrielle (@ Rep_Giffords ) starts her second day of rehab in 20 minutes at Memorial Hermann. No weekends off here.”

Giffords was shot in the head and gravely wounded and six others killed when a gunman opened fire at a routine constituents’ event outside a Tucson supermarket. Jared Lee Loughner, 22, was charged in the case.

Congresswoman Giffords arrived by private jet from Tuscan on Friday afternoon right here in Houston and was taken by LifeFlight medical helicopter to the Memorial Hermann Hospital intensive care unit before she was to transferred to TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Medical Center.
