Kelly's identical brother, Scott Kelly, joined us live from outer space today to talk about the progress his sister-in- law is making and what it's like trying to stay in touch from so far away.
"Yes, it's really good news every time I talk to my brother," he said. "It seems like she's making really small steps which I think in this type of injury is really critical." "We are all optimistic about her outcome."
He also talked about how often he keeps in touch with his brother.
"I probably talk to him twice a day, in the morning and right before I go to sleep," he said. "I spoke to him this morning. I think he is coping as well as you can in this situation," he said. "Certainly, it's a very very difficult but I think he is doing as good as you can expect anyone to do."See the emotionally charged exclusive interview with Giffords' husband Tuesday on Eyewitness News at 5pm and 6pm.
