Kelly didn’t go into details of his wife’s medical situation, but he did offer this update: “Every day, she gets a little better, and the neurosurgeons and neurologists tell me that that’s a great sign.

Kelly didn’t go into details of his wife’s medical situation, but he did offer this update: “Every day, she gets a little better, and the neurosurgeons and neurologists tell me that that’s a great sign. The slope of that curve is very important.”

Before Kelly spoke, President Barack Obama shared the nation’s prayers for Giffords.

“We have been praying for Mark’s wife, Gabby Giffords, for many days now,” Obama said in remarks at the Hilton Washington Hotel. “But I want Gabby and Mark and their entire family to know that we are with them for the long haul. And God is with them for the long haul.”

Obama said his two years in the presidency “have deepened my faith.”

“The presidency has a funny way of making a person feel the need to pray,” he joked.

Kelly followed Obama at the event chaired by Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., and former Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz.

“Almost always, when there is tragedy, there is a release of great love,” said Kirkpatrick, a friend of Giffords who was defeated in the 2010 election.

The shooting left in doubt whether Kelly would fly the Endeavour in April. Late Thursday, Politico reported he would.
