First photos of Gabby Giffords posted on her Facebook page

The first photographs of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since she was shot in the head in January have been made public. Two images were posted on her Facebook page early Sunday, both showing the congresswoman outside and smiling, wearing glasses, with her hair shorn short. One of them shows her sitting with an unidentified woman. The is the first glimpse the public has had of the injured lawmaker since late April, when a blurry photo snapped from far away captured her boarding a plane to Florida to watch her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, prepare for a space flight.

For several months, Giffords has been receiving treatment at a Houston rehabilitation center.

Six people were killed and 13 people were injured on January 8 when a gunman opened fire at a Tucson, Arizona, political event that Giffords was hosting outside a grocery store. Suspect Jared Lee Loughner has pleaded not guilty to charges related to the shooting, and a judge has ruled him mentally incompetent to stand trial. Prosecutors are working to get that ruling overturned.

    Oooooohhhh, I love it, Cosmo. Another stupid ass conspiracy theory that we can add to the mix with all of the other stupid ass conspiracy theories. It is my esteemed and humbled opinion that you are a stupid ass.

    Well, it looks like that Asian surgeon gave her the haircut, but everything else looks great. Go Gabby.

    Thank goodness we don't have a government controlled health care system like Canada, and all the rest. She never would have made it. If Obozo was successful in destroying our health care system like he is trying to do with his Obozocare, she would have been gone a long time ago.
