Following Giffords will give us a chance to learn about modern rehab medicine. Hope you'll do lots of reporting as she progresses. Seems like there's lots to learn about various forms of therapy, neuroplasticity, effectiveness and cost of treatment, the institution where she'll be treated and what sort of patients it serves.
