First Photos: Gabrielle Giffords is shown smiling

P.K. Weis,

Now isn't this awesome! These wonderful new photos of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords were just released today of her looking good and smiling. The congresswoman is shown smiling above with her mom as she prepares to leave the hospital in a month.

From The Associated Press:

The photos were taken May 17 outside the Houston rehabilitation facility where Giffords has been undergoing treatment since she was wounded five months ago at a meet-and-greet event with constituents. Six people died and a dozen others were hurt in the Jan. 8 attack in Tucson, Ariz. Since then, access to the Arizona congresswoman has been tightly controlled. Until Sunday, no clear images had been released. The only recent sign of Giffords came in late April, when grainy television footage showed her slowly ascending a flight of steps to a NASA plane that took her to Florida to watch her astronaut husband rocket into space. The image was so blurry that it was impossible to confirm it was Giffords until doctors did so at a news conference in mid-May.
