A University of the Pacific graduate who was shot four times during the mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. on Friday has successfully come through surgery and was moved out of the intensive care unit, according to her pastor in Colorado.

Petra Anderson was shot three times in the arm and once in the head while at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises." At about 12:30 a.m. Friday, suspect James Holmes, 24, opened fire in the theater, killing 12 and injuring 58.

    Let's not use religious blogs as a source for medical information.

    From NBC News:

    Rauzzino [the neurosurgeon who operated on Anderson] denied news reports stemming from a pastor’s blog that Anderson had a congenital defect in her brain creating a void, or hole, the pellet shuttled along to save her life.

    “Her brain was no different than anyone else's,” he said. “What made her so fortunate was the trajectory of the bullet as it passed through.”
