Giffords 'becoming more spontaneous'

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' recovery is "going as anticipated," and doctors are seeing what they want to see so far, the hospital
treating her said Wednesday.

Peter Rhee, chief of emergency medicine at University Medical Center in Tucson, said "none of the downward events have occurred at this time" in her recovery.

Doctors have decreased the amount of sedation they are giving her, and she is "becoming more and more spontaneous all the time," Rhee added.
