    all I have yet heard is that she is in critical condition, responding to commands, and survived a gun shot wound to the head.

    If you have more info please post it, thanks.

    Assuming she does live through this it's unlikely she'll be 100% normal. I read something yesterday that said only 5% of people survive a gunshot wound to the head and of those who do, something like only 3% recover without at least some loss of motor skills and/or memory.
