Fantastic … US Rep Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) Breathing on Her Own & Off Ventilator


From the LA Times, US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) taken off ventilator. Fantastic news from such a tragic event. With all the negative news, speculation, false accusations, and hideous and senseless acts of violence by gunman Jared Loughner … it is great to se this uplifting and positive news that Gabby Giffords is well on her way on the mend … good luck Gabby and our prayers are with you.

Doctors in Tucson take shooting victim Gabrielle Giffords off a ventilator, which means she is breathing on her own.

Surgeons at Tucson’s University Medical Center removed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords from a ventilator Saturday and inserted a tracheotomy tube into her neck to assist her breathing, according to the center.

Removing her from the ventilator, which means she is now breathing on her own, allows the medical team to assess her ability to speak and is another step toward stabilizing her condition so she can leave the intensive care unit and be moved to a regular hospital room.

      This is great news. Also very touching and heart warming to see that the organs of Christina Taylor Green have been donated to another little girl in need in Boston.

      Christina’s goodness will live on. And Senator Giffords remarkable recovery restores our faith that it really is okay to believe in true miracles of God right here on Earth.
