14-year-old Pakistani girl who advocated girls' education recovering from being shot in the head
Reunited with her family, Malala's prognosis is good - CNN.com
She does not appear to have suffered significant brain damage, he said. "There's no real areas of concern, at this stage," he added.
He said she is tired, but "managed a big smile" when she saw her family. The teenager is able to breathe on her own, her father said.
Rosser said Malala can walk "with very little help, just a nurse's arm on her elbow for support, and she "appears to have very good memories of both the last few days of her care and events prior to this incident," he said.
But he said hospital staffers have not asked the girl about the shooting itself. "Asking people to relive the memories increases the chance of post-traumatic stress," he said.
On Friday, the girl was to undergo blood tests and tests on her hearing and vision, "just to make sure that we're not missing anything," since the bullet entered her skull above her left eyebrow, he said.
