Amazing: Gabrielle Giffords Gives Great Neck Massage To Her Husband Amid Her Miracle Recovery

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, Get Well, In White Folks News

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…

    I’m glad she survived and all that.but now that she’s recovering she’s fair game too.I heard she’s Jewish so a neck rub is about as freaky as they get.

  • if anything be noble

    I’m glad she’s recovering but the minute by minute coverage is uh…. Tonight: GG ate a pea.

    As soon as I heard about this tragedy, I prayed for the recovery all of the victims. For Gabrielle, I prayed to God for every synapse, nerve and tissue within her brain to be restored (“Restore all that the canker worm has eaten”-from the Bible for those who do not know). Also prayed that He would use her as a shining example for all the world to see “His Miracle” through Gabrielle. this prayer has been answered. All of the prayers that were sent up to Heaven for her, by us all, have reached the throne of God and His answer was a resounding “YES”! Thank you ABBA Father, and Thank you Jesus. For all the non-believers: “See what God can do?”

      Amen. I had a major today, and no one can’t tell me that it was not by the grace of God. I continue to pray for all those in the world, because the heart of men continue to grow colder and colder.
