Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., vows that she'll return to Congress in an upcoming book.
The book, Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope, is written by Giffords's husband, Mark Kelly, and details the congresswoman's recovery in the aftermath the Jan. 8 shooting attack in Tucson, Ariz., that left her wounded and killed six others. The Associated Press obtained an advance copy of the book, set to be released on Nov. 15.
Giffords has not formally decided on running for her House seat next year, but her friends have held fundraisers on her behalf should she choose to do so.
The book reveals previously unknown anecdotes from the past few months about Giffords, who has not been seen often in public since the shooting. When former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, visited her in the Houston hospital where she was rehabilitating, she replied to everything with the word "chicken" --- the only word she was able to enunciate at the time.
The book also reveals that Giffords and Kelly were looking to have a baby sometime this year and that Giffords had been undergoing fertility treatments.
