MSN reported that on Monday she was flown to Birmingham, England's Queen Elizabeth Hospital whose expertise lies in trauma cases.
Dr. Dave Rosser, medical director at the hospital, said to MSN that she was "well enough that she's agreed that she's happy, in fact keen, for us to share more clinical detail."
He added that the infection in her throat is probably related to the bullet that grazed her head. Because of the infection he added to MSN that she is not completely "out of the woods yet."
The Daily Mail reported that she also has swelling in her brain.
The Daily Mail reported that her first question after waking up from an induced coma was 'Which country am I in?'
Rosser said to according to The Daily Mail, "She is writing very freely, she has had a tracheotomy as her airway was swollen by the passing of the bullet.
She's not able to talk, but we have no reason to believe she wouldn't be able to talk once this tube is out, which may be in the next few days."
