Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has arrived at a Houston hospital where she'll begin physical therapy after being gravely wounded in an assassination attempt.

Giffords still hasn't spoken since a gunman shot her and 18 other people Jan. 8 as she met with constituents outside a grocery store in Tucson. Six died. All survivors other than Giffords have been released from hospitals.
