Gabrielle Giffords undergoes surgery
NATIONAL NEWS (FOX44) Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will undergo surgery on May 18th while her husband is in space.
Doctors will replace a piece of Giffords' skull with a plastic implant.
They had removed a part of her skull to allow room for brain swelling shortly after she was shot in the head January 8th, in a mass shooting in Arizona that killed six.
The surgery comes just days after Giffords traveled to Florida to watch her husband, Astronaut Mark Kelly, launch into space aboard space shuttle Endeavour.
