"It's very good news," spokesman C.J. Karamargin tells CNN, adding that Giffords asked for a piece of toast this week.

Why that facility?

"The reason for choosing this rehab facility is because of their track record," Karamargin said. "They are doing a fabulous job and working with her language and speech exercise and the physical therapy part of it."

Bless her heart! She is so strong. Technically, only 10% of most people could even survive that shooting.
