Signs of hope in Giffords's medical condition
Rob Stein and Shankar Vedantam
"Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was fighting for her life Sunday after being shot through the head, but doctors said the passage of the bullet through only one side of her brain and her initial responsiveness give hope she could survive and even make a significant recovery.
"Giffords, however, has entered a crucial 48-hour period when swelling from the trauma of the bullet blast could cause as much damage to her brain as the initial wound, possibily triggering a major deterioration of her condition. The Arizona Democrat also faces many additional risks, including possible infections, more bleeding, and a long period of rehabilitation to limit permanent disabilities."
