Giffords Upgraded to Serious Condition

Posted By on Sun, Jan 16, 2011 at 4:54 PM

Today's news from University Medical Center:

Three patients from the tragic shooting a week ago remain at UMC. Two are listed in good condition and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been upgraded to serious condition from critical because she is no longer on a ventilator.

The Congresswoman continues to do well. She is breathing on her own. Yesterday’s procedures were successful and uneventful.

Despite Dr. Rhee's claim last week that the doctors' press briefings weren't picked up for another season, a briefing is scheduled for 11 a.m. tomorrow (Monday).
