BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Bonnie Kate Pourciau likes to wear a flower in her dark hair. There's usually a bouquet of fresh flowers in her house.
She wore a bright one to a winter physical therapy session - a flag of cheer in the face of the difficult, painful work of recovering the full use of her left leg.
Pourciau, 19, says she goes to physical therapy three times weekly for injuries she suffered in July when a gunman opened fire in an Aurora, Colo., theater.
A road trip out West with a friend had been slowed by drought and fires in Colorado, so the movie was an afterthought when they stopped in Aurora on July 19 and went to the midnight premiere of the Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises."
