Doctors say Representative Gabrielle Giffords might be able to leave her Tucson hospital within weeks or even days. Giffords, whose recovery that surgeons have called miraculous from a gunshot wound to the head, has a lengthy rehabilitation process ahead of her. “The family is looking at all their resources. They have the whole country available,” Michael Lemole Jr., Giffords’s neurosurgeon, said at a press conference Monday. Giffords is recovering from this weekend’s surgery to repair her right eye socket, which was damaged when the bullet entered the left side of her brain, causing pressure that pushed bone fragments into her right eye.
