Prometheus Unbound

Houston’s Texas Medical Center has been in the news lately as Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords begins rehabilitative therapy after being shot in the head in Tucson earlier this month. The start of her recovery will take place at TIRR (The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research), a premier rehabilitation hospital renowned for its treatment of traumatic brain injuries.

The statue “Prometheus Unbound” welcomes visitors to TIRR and inspires people that, “Man uses the tiniest strengths for the greatest purposes.”

    Lets hope for the best for Gabrielle Giffords.

  2. I just found your blog and my husband Dennis stayed at TIRR for 60 days following a spinal cord injury due to a dirt bike accident. The place is amazing and saved our lives by teaching us how to live after trauma. Great photo!
