UPI News Service, 08/04/2006 

CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier, who was critically wounded in an explosion in Iraq, has been discharged from a Baltimore hospital.

Dozier was reporting a story on May 29 in Baghdad when an explosion killed her camera crew -- Britons Paul Douglas and James Brolan -- as well as a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi translator.

Dozier was taken to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany until June 7 when she was transferred to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., where she underwent intensive physical therapy. On July 17, she was moved to Kernan Hospital in Maryland, a state of the art rehabilitation facility that is part of the University of Maryland hospital system.

"Folks, I'm leaving hospitals behind, ahead of the deadline, or at least ahead of schedule," she said in a written statement. "I've had a couple setbacks, and I still face a couple minor surgeries, but overall, the prognosis is far better than the docs had hoped just after I'd reached Germany."

The next step, said Dozier, is continued outpatient rehabilitation "to get my body used to being in motion full-time."
