Ariz. congresswoman less sedated, more responsive

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is less sedated and more responsive four days after being shot in the head.

University of Arizona trauma chief Dr. Peter Rhee said Wednesday that her recovery from a gunshot wound to the head is going as anticipated and she has become more responsive as she comes off the heavy medication.

He says her condition is stable and so far, has not taken any dips.
