Husband: Giffords' breathing tube may be removed Friday

Doctors could remove the breathing tube for U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Friday as she continues on her "miracle" journey to recovery after an assassination attempt and mass shooting, her husband said.

Though the congresswoman had been shot in the head less than a week ago, she continues to make progress, her husband and doctors told CNN.

Her husband, Mark Kelly, told Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent, that his wife is aware to some degree of what is going on around her. It was Kelly's first interview since the tragedy.

Jake Glaser

More than 25 years ago, Jake Glaser's mother unknowingly infected him in utero with HIV. His older sister, Ariel, also had been accidentally infected.

Elizabeth Glaser, the wife of TV actor Paul Michael Glaser, became the nation's best-known AIDS activist, making a dramatic speech at the 1992 Democratic Convention.

Both she and Ariel died of the disease.
