Giffords opens both eyes and moves her arms, legs

FILE - In this March, 2010 file photo provided by the office of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Giffords poses for a photo. She loves motorcycles and yoga, and is as comfortable in a business suit walking the halls of Congress as she is clad in leather riding gear at the famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. She holds a master's degree in urban planning, yet can mount a tire in a flash. Pretty and petite, sometimes soft-spoken, she will take on even her most ardent   adversaries and try talking them down with a firm hand but also a smile. Said one friend of Gabrielle Giffords: "She really pretty much defies a lot of description."  (AP Photo/Office of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, File)
