Rep. Gabrielle Giffords may be released from intensive care and transferred to a brain rehabilitation hospital as early as this week, ABC News has learned. The fluid accumulation in her brain that concerned doctors over the weekend has already begun to subside.

Meanwhile, at tonight’s State of the Union address, members of both political parties will be wearing black and white ribbons in a show of solidarity with Giffords and the people of Tucson. In a special gesture, her friends in Congress will leave one seat unfilled.

“There is going to be a chair left empty to symbolize what we all know will be a triumphant return to the House of Representatives when she comes back to us full strength,” said Giffords’ friend and colleague, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

In Houston, Giffords’ husband, NASA Commander Mark Kelly, plans to watch tonight’s State of the Union Address from the hospital. While he keeps watch by her side, the clock is ticking on a critical decision. Kelly has said he will decide within two weeks whether he will command the space shuttle Endeavor’s final mission in April.

    Good that she is standing up now, time for her to grab her pocketbook and start paying some of the victims and families from her event that she instigated that resulted in all the harm and death to victims that day not so long ago. We need her healthy enough to sit in a prison cell awaiting to death penalty imo. There are endless news reports of the threats made prior to the event with Giffords taking no action to secure the event she staged. Had it not been for Gifford’s presence on that day, there would be no dead people or victims that day. I believe she actually needs to receive the death penalty for her crimes, but it may more likely be something like involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault on multiple counts.

    • You are a complete idiot. How can you honestly sit there and blame Rep. Giffords for this unfortunate event. I would bet last week you were one of the morons who was blaming Sarah Palin for this happening. Do you have any clue how many public officials like Ms. Giffords get death threats on a daily basis. It’s very unfortunate that anyone had to lose their life, but to suggest that rep. Giffords should be in prison is completely idiotic, stupid and shows the entire world how uninformed and unintelligent you are. I’d love to see these so called “news reports” you mention. Don’t quote me some random bloggers either. Better yet. I don’t care what more you have to say on the subject.

      Choke On That!
