She was discharged from hospital and communicated sufficiently well to write her memories with help from her husband and a professional author. [6] In early August she returned to Congress and voted in the crucial debt limitation debate. [7] In January 2012 sadly Gabriell resigned from Congress and says she must work further on her recovery. [8] If only guns were harder to obtain in the USA this tragedy would have probably never have happened. As of autumn 2012 Gifford was well enough to attend court and watch her attacker sentences to life in Prison. [9] As of 2013 Gifford had improved her health a great deal but was still seriously disabled, she will never be her old self again.
