Rep. Giffords Upgraded From "Serious" to "Good"

Posted By on Tue, Jan 25, 2011 at 11:29 PM

From the New York Times:

Doctors on Tuesday night upgraded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’s medical condition from serious to good, and announced they planned to move her from an intensive care unit to a rehabilitation hospital as early as Wednesday morning.

The upgrade in her condition was another sign of the “strong progress” Ms. Giffords has made since arriving at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center in Houston last Friday, the hospital said in a statement. Doctors at the hospital were slightly concerned over the weekend by fluid accumulation in Ms. Giffords’ brain, which delayed her transfer out of intensive care. But a procedure to remove the fluid led to some improvement.

The decision to upgrade her condition was made Tuesday night.

“Preparations are under way for her transfer to the rehabilitation hospital sometime tomorrow morning, pending review of her medical condition early in the morning,” the hospital said. They said they planned to hold a news conference Wednesday afternoon to discuss her condition.
