The procedure yesterday, which replaced a portion of the congresswoman's skull that had been removed to prevent damage from swelling, went as planned. According to doctors at the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center in Houston, where she is undergoing rehab from her January shooting, she is "recovering well" with her new, partially plastic skull.
