Gabrielle Giffords, the Arizona congresswoman who was shot in the head in January, was released from the hospital.

Giffords’ release Wednesday came days after the release of photos of the congresswoman taken in May.

She reportedly will move to her husband astronaut Mark Kelly’s home in League City, Texas, near the Johnson Space Center, and will return to the hospital each day for speech, music, physical and occupational therapy.

It is unknown whether she will be able to return to her job as a congresswoman.

The first Jewish congresswoman elected from Arizona, Giffords had been in a recovery facility in Houston. The third-term Democrat was shot Jan. 8 as she met with constituents in Tucson, Ariz.; six people were killed.
