Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is speaking!

Gabrielle Giffords‘ simple request for a piece of toast for breakfast this week signaled a milestone in her recovery — because she asked for it with spoken words.

The Democratic congresswoman from Arizona, severely wounded when she was shot in the head at a public event a month ago, has been speaking “more and more each day,” C.J. Karamargin, one of her congressional aides, said Wednesday.

Karamargin could not give specifics about the extent of her speech abilities or when she said her first words, but he said the development pointed to Giffords’ fighting spirit.

“It’s another one of these small miracles that we’re seeing that have been happening throughout this ordeal,” he said.

Experts called the development a hopeful sign, but cautioned that it did not necessarily mean recovery of her language skills would be quick or complete.
