According to UMC, this will be the last regular press conference, with future updates coming from the web.
Rhee: 4 remaining patients in hospital. 3 in good condition. Everyone is doing extremely well.
Lemole: Giffords is continuing to follow commands. Confident she is making progress. Beginning to carry out complex sequences of events.
Lemole: Couldn't have hoped for any better.
Douglas family is reading a statement on behalf of Ron Barber's behalf.
Barber: Thanking the staff. Doesn't believe he would be alive without intervention of Anna Ballas.
Barber: Thanking a list of staffers from UMC, including the nurses in the ICU. Will be able to attend service for John Roll and then return home.
Barber: Asking for prayers for Giffords.
Ron Barber has already left the hospital. Wanted to make statement, so his daughters did on his behalf.
He insisted on seeing the memorial, walked the entire memorial yesterday.
Barber had a staff meeting in his hospital room yesterday.
Rhee jokes that the conferences haven't been "picked up for the next season". End of today's conference.
