It's hard to believe it's been 11 months since Gabrielle Giffords took a bullet that shot straight into her forehead as she was meeting constituents at a "Congress on Your Corner" event, ultimately rendering her unable to nod her head or even smile. But the good news is, she's doing remarkably well.

Giffords and her husband sat down with Diane Sawyer in an attempt to somehow sum up the traumatic event and her experiences with rehabilitation and recovery:

"How do you feel?" Diane Sawyer asks Giffords during her time with her and Kelly. It is the first time the two have shared their story since the attack.

"Pretty good," says Giffords.

"Is it painful?" Sawyer asks.

"It's difficult," says Giffords. "Difficult."

Giffords, who had a 1 in 10 chance of surviving the shooting, received a lot of support from her husband Kelly, an astronaut who recently retired from NASA and stayed by Gabrielle's side the entire time. Kelly also made a series of videos documenting her recovery because he says he knew should would one day recover and would want to know what happened to her.

"I just thought, she's going to ask, 'OK, what was all that like?'" Kelly says.

Gabrielle and Mark will tell their full story to Diane Sawyer this Monday, Nov. 14 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
