Gabrielle Giffords Speaks: I Feel 'Pretty Good'

In her first interview since suffering a head injury in the Arizona shooting last January, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will appear on ABC with Diane Sawyer, set to air Monday.

Gabrielle and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, recount the last 10 months of Giffords' recovery, with the Congresswoman telling Diane it was "difficult."

Giffords, 41, had a one-in-ten chance of surviving, but managed to pull through and has done better than anyone could have imagined.

With the loving support of Kelly, who never gave up hope, Gabrielle now talks about making her political comeback. Mark, who recently accepted his wife's Glamour Magazine Woman of the Year Award, took to the stage and said, "Gabby is working very hard to get back in Congress, to get back to her office, to represent those people." The couple also penned a memoir, "Gabby: A Story of Hope and Courage," about the Congresswoman's miraculous recovery.

Kelly, 47, also documented Gabby's rehabilitation through a series of home videos, knowing Giffords would one day want to know what happened to her. According to ABC, Kelly was completely certain his wife would fully recover. The never-before-seen home videos will be shown in the full interview, airing Nov. 14 at 10 PM/ET on ABC.

Sawyer spoke of the riveting face-to-face, saying, "I think it's one of the most inspiring and astonishing hours that I've ever seen because of her... because of her."
