NOVI, Mich. (WXYZ) - Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords isn't finished with public service just yet according to her husband.
"She's going to continue to work on her rehabilitation," said Mark Kelly, who retired from NASA after piloting the final mission of Space Shuttle Endeavor. "Whether it's a year from now, two years from now, five years from now--when she's ready she'll come back to some kind of public service.
Kelly was guest speaker at the annual Brain Injury Association of Michigan Legacy Society dinner Saturday night in Novi.
Giffords resigned her seat in Congress earlier this year in order to focus on her recovery from a gun shot wound to the head she suffered on January 8, 2011. Six people were killed during the shooting rampage in Tucson, Arizona.
Kelly told Action News his wife's recovery to date has been remarkable.
"To see how far she's come, it's amazing, possibly a miracle. It's really just incredible."
Kelly said a possible return to Congress hasn't been ruled out.
"With regards to goals, they're really, really important," Kelly said. But it's also important that she sets them herself and I think that's true with most people with these kind of injuries."
March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.
