US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, shot in the head in an Arizona attack, is walking and stringing sentences together, doctors in Texas say.
Ms Giffords’ condition was said to be improving in “leaps and bounds”.
Doctors also said her husband and medics had told her about the shooting that wounded 13 and killed six people.
Doctors said it was too early to say whether she would be able to attend the launch of the Space Shuttle mission to be commanded by her husband in April.
