9:07 am
devitalized brain. at that point she returned to the icu. we'll tell you briefly that when we talk about gunshot wounds to the head, the things that are most concerning to us are if the bullet crosses from one hemisphere to the other. if the bullet crosses through the geometric center of the brain. i'm happy to say those were not case in this distance instance. because of that. she is able to communicate to us this morning to follow simple commands. we are still in critical condition, brain swelling at any time could take it for the worse but i am cautiously optimistic. dr. reid will talk about the critical care management that will be vital. >> you heard the latest on her condition. obviously brain damage not as
