(Reuters) – Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords appears to be steadily regaining physical function and awareness six days after she was shot through the head by a gunman at close range, doctors said on Friday.

Giffords, 44, is improving in her ability to follow simple voice commands, such as to raise her fingers or wiggle her toes and is opening her eyes more frequently, Dr. Michael Lemole told reporters at the University medical Center in Tucson.

“We’re actually confident that she’s making some progress now,” Lemole said. “And we can even think that she is beginning to carry out more sequences of events, more complex sequences of activity, in response to our commands, or even spontaneously.”

He added that doctors were “very encouraged that she’s continuing to make all the right moves in the right direction.” She opened her eyes for the first time since the shooting on Wednesday while surrounded by friends and family just after a visit to her hospital room by President Barack Obama.
