Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returns to Houston after holiday weekend visit to Arizona
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) ' U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has returned to Houston following a brief weekend visit to Arizona.
She arrived in Tucson Friday evening with her husband, retired astronaut and Navy Capt. Mark Kelly. Her spokesman, Mark Kimble, confirmed to The Associated Press Monday afternoon the Arizona lawmaker departed Monday.
Kimble called the weekend trip very uneventful for Giffords as she continues to recover from a head wound suffered Jan. 8 when a gunman opened fire outside a Tucson-area grocery store while meeting constituents.
It was her second trip to Arizona since being discharged from a Houston rehab hospital in June.
