Two months after being shot in the head by a would-be assassin, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has recovered to the point where family, friends and doctors are seriously entertaining the hope that she will be able to attend her husband's space shuttle launch in April.
Mark Kelly will be commanding space shuttle Endeavor's mission, set to blast off April 19. According to one of the doctors who saved her life in Tucson, there's "no reason not to" believe she can continue her remarkable recovery and witness that moment.
"She's doing well and she can only get better," Dr. Peter Rhee, the chief of trauma at the University Medical Center in Tucson told CBS News' John Blackstone.
