(CNN) - U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, recovering from a gunshot wound to the head sustained January 8, is regaining part of her ability to speak, her spokesman said Wednesday.
C.J. Karamargin would not divulge what Giffords has said, other than saying she asked for toast.
"It's very good news," he told CNN.
Giffords is at TIRR Memorial Hermann rehabilitation hospital in Houston. She was moved there late last month from University Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona, where she was taken after the shooting at a "Congress on Your Corner" event at a Tucson supermarket.
