Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to place a plastic implant in her skull, the Associated Press reported Tuesday, citing a person familiar with the Arizona Democrat’s care.
Doctors removed part of Giffords’ skull to relieve swelling in her brain after she was shot in January. She had been holding an event for constituents outside a grocery store in Tucson, Ariz., when an attacker opened fire, killing six people and wounding Giffords and a dozen others.
American flags decorate the hood of an antique Ford car in the 4th of July Parade in Ripley, W. Va., on July 4, 2014. The parade is billed as "the USA's largest small town Independence Day Celebration."
