PHOENIX - US Representative Gabrielle Giffords is returning home to the Arizona city of Tucson for the weekend for the first time since she left the state for treatment after being shot in the head in January, her office said on Friday.

The Democratic congresswoman, who was discharged on Wednesday from a Houston hospital, will not make any public appearances or grant interviews during the visit, and instead plans to see family, her office said.

"We've been dreaming of this trip for some time," Giffords' husband, Mark Kelly, said in a statement.

"Gabby misses Tucson very much and her doctors have said that returning to her hometown could play an important role in her recovery. It is sure to be very emotional," he said.
