TUCSON, AZ — Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has been released from the hospital after suffering appendicitis.
Eleven years ago, I left the hospital facing a lifetime of recovery. Today, I’m leaving the hospital glad it’s only appendicitis, and grateful for friends, family, my incredible medical team, and of course @CaptMarkKelly, who gives true meaning to “in sickness and in health.” pic.twitter.com/XhiKkwf8gL— Gabrielle Giffords (@GabbyGiffords) February 19, 2022
