HOUSTON -- Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is trying to get used to life at home near Houston.

She's now staying with husband Mark Kelly in League City Texas while going to out-patient therapy at TIRR Memorial Hospital.

While running errands Thrusday, Kelly took a moment to talk about his wife's progress.

"But it's great to have her here, and it's great for her to out of the hospital.  That's a long time for anybody to be in a hospital bed, in a hospital room.  The people at TIRR were really, really great to her.  I mean we could've not asked for better care.  And she was a little apprehensive, a little bit of a sad day but she was happy to get here. She's really looking forward to getting back to Tucson," said Kelly.

Giffords continues to struggle speaking and walking after being shot point blank in the head in January.
