Malala is awake

She’s awake, and she has stood up. She’s making good progress. She might make a full recovery.

The hospital held a news conference and said the teenager is aware of her surroundings and making good progress.

Malala, CBS News correspondent Charlie D’Agata reported on “CBS This Morning,” has some memory as to what happened, and remembers she was in Pakistan on a school bus one moment, and then, in the next, woke up in a foreign country. One of the first things she asked when she came out of her medically-induced coma Tuesday, D’Agata reported, was what country she was in.

At this early stage, in terms of neurological damage, doctors are say[ing] they hop[e] she will make a full recovery. She’s not out of the woods, they say, but she’s close to the edge of the woods.

That is good news.

    Ah, thank you for that, Maureen – that’s even better. I don’t know why I decided to use CBS news, except that it was the first one I saw and I was rushing to get the good news out.

    My pleasure! The link to the video in the newer post is not working, though.

    I’m impressed with the effort Dr Rosser takes to make sure everyone understands, though he’s not in his natural habitat doing press conferences. Those were the key points but the whole thing was much longer including answering several questions.
