Despite the initial grim prognosis from the team at University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Jovanna Calzadillas is finally going home. And she is going to walk right out of the hospital.


The 30-year-old mother of two was shot in the head during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, surviving an attack that left 58 others dead and nearly 500 injured. Although doctors initially told Jovanna’s husband, Frank, that she was unlikely to survive after a bullet that went through her brain, Jovanna made what doctors are calling a “miraculous” recovery and left the hospital yesterday.

“Even though I won’t be the same old Jovanna, I will come back stronger,” she said during a press conference earlier this week. “We will not let people like him win and we will not live in fear.”
