Major Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist charged in last month's deadly shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas has been transferred from the intensive care unit of the hospital where he's being held.
However, Hasan's wounds have left him permanently paralyzed.
Defense lawyer John Galligan said Hasan is conscious and able to talk. He can move his arms, and has some use of his hands.
Doctors said Hasan will be hospitalized for at least two more months while he learns to care for himself. He is currently under guard at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
He has no television and is not allowed to watch the news.
Hasan faces charges of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder in the Nov. 5 attack.
