President Obama salutes the struggles of the representative and the heroes of Arizona.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords entered a rehabilitation center on Jan. 26, following doctors’ upgrade of her condition from “serious” to “good,” reports The Washington Post.

The representative, 40, will continue her recovery at Houston’s TIRR Memorial Hermann rehabilitation center, a very positive move from her stay at the Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center, where she’s been healing since Friday.

“Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has made strong progress in the Neuro ICU,” hospital representatives said before the transition. “This evening, her doctors upgraded her condition from serious to good and determined that she is ready to move.”

As the logistics of her transfer were being developed, President Obama delivered his State of the Union address, which offered several nods to the Arizona tragedy. In addition to verbal well-wishes sent to Gabrielle and the other victims, the crowd was adorned with black-and-white ribbons, worn over the heart to represent those shot on Jan. 8.

Gabrielle and her husband Mark Kelly watched the speech on television, and he held her hand throughout the address.

We wish Gabby a continued speedy recovery!
