Sunday, 12 Jun 2011 10:10 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — One of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' closest friends in Congress is impressed by Giffords' "remarkable progress" from her shooting in January.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that she had a "wonderful conversation" on the telephone with Giffords on Wednesday.

Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, says Giffords spoke in full sentences and initiated some of conversation instead of just responding, as she had done in the recent past.

Giffords was shot in the head during the attack at a constituent event in Tucson, Ariz., on Jan. 8. Six people were killed and 13 were injured.

The Arizona Democrat has been in a Houston rehabilitation facility since two weeks after shooting.
