Man, now THIS is what you call a woman that’s totally down for her man. *salute*
The already amazing recovery of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has become even more miraculous.
The congresswoman — shot through the head just over a week ago — is now giving back rubs and neck massages to her astronaut husband, even as she remains in an Arizona intensive-care unit.
Giffords’ hubby, Capt. Mark Kelly, said the affectionate massages are “so typical” of the spunky legislator, who could be released within days from a Tucson hospital to begin rehabilitation at another facility.
“She’s in the ICU. You know, gone through this traumatic injury,” the Navy pilot and space-shuttle commander told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer in an interview being aired today.
“And she spent 10 minutes giving me a neck massage.”
“I keep tellin’ her, I’m like, ‘Gabby, you’re in the ICU. You know, you don’t need . . . to be doin’ this,’ ” Kelly said. “But it’s so typical of her that no matter how bad the situation might be for her, you know, she’s looking out for other people.”
Giffords’ doctors are equally impressed.
“There’s a lot of inference there, but it does imply that she is recognizing him and that she’s interacting in an old, familiar way with him,” Dr. G. Michael Lemole said at a briefing at the University Medical Center.
“Again, all those higher levels of cognitive functioning are at least somehow, somewhat preserved here.”
Its great that Giffords is recovering at such a rate that she’s able to do stuff like this, but we urge her not to take it too far. You’re still in a fragile state ma’am, a neck massage is cool, but don’t try to do a “Tiny” you should prolly wait until you’re a little more healthy…
