http://azstarnet.com/news/local/article_3d016192-2503-11e0-b2e4-001cc4c002e0.htmlU.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords felt the sunshine on her face for the first time since she was shot, her family said.
Giffords who was shot in the head Jan. 8 outside a northwest side grocery story, in a shooting spree that left 6 people dead and 13 wounded, spent some time on a deck at University Medical Center Thursday.
Giffords is set to travel to Houston Friday for rehab.
Her office released a photo of the outing. It shows her astronaut husband, Mark Kelly, standing over Giffords in her hospital bed. Giffords cannot be seen in the photo that shows a view of Tucson and the Catalina Foothills.
At a news conference earlier in the day, Kelly told reports that he's hoping for a full recovery and called his wife "a fighter like nobody else that I know."
