Giffords aide says she walks with cane, writes
TUCSON | A close aide to U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says the Arizona congresswoman is walking with a cane, writing left-handed and showing she has more goals to achieve.
District director Ron Barber told a meeting of the Democrats of Greater Tucson on Monday that Ms. Giffords is on a path to full recovery following the Jan. 8 shooting of her and others outside a supermarket.
The Arizona Daily Star reports Mr. Barber and his wife had dinner with Ms. Giffords when the congresswoman visited Tucson in June. Mr. Barber says Ms. Giffords recognized and responded to every place, person and issue he mentioned.
