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.”
