AMAZING! Rep.Gabby Giffords Back On House Floor Today For The First Time Since Shooting!!

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Emergency legislation to avoid an economy-rattling government default sped through the House Monday night, a scant day before the deadline for action - the dramatic vote made all the more memorable by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' first appearance in Congress since suffering a head wound in a shooting six months ago.

The vote was 269-161, but all eyes were on Giffords, who drew thunderous applause as she walked into the House chamber and cast her vote in favor of the bill.

Hooray for Gabby! I cant believe how well she has recovered in such a short time!! What an amazing woman.

On twitter, someone said she was a ray of sunshine in a dismal house today. They were right! I am so happy to see her up and about and making her way back to congress!

It sure does Desp. I cried. She looked great, but so tiny didn't she. I was amazed that she had the stamina to stay for the vote. They said she insisted she wanted to be there.
