U.S. senator recovering from brain surgery

WASHINGTON, Dec 21 (Reuters) - U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson remains in critical condition and is being kept sedated to aid his recovery from brain surgery last week, according to doctors statements released by his office on Thursday.

"Sen. Tim Johnson is recovering as expected from brain surgery and his brain pressures continue to be in the normal range," said Dr. Anthony Caputy of the George Washington University Hospital department of neurosurgery.

"Sen. Johnson is sedated to allow his systems to rest and recover from the hemorrhage and we anticipate no further tests or procedures in the near future," said neurosurgeon Vivek Deshmukh. "This is expected to continue through the holidays."

...

Johnson's colleagues have said they are optimistic that he will be able to remain in the Senate. That would allow the Democratic Party, which won a narrow advantage over Republicans in the November elections, to take control of the Senate when the 110th Congress convenes on Jan. 4.

1. What incredibly sad news for "christian conservatives" in this country
The man is going to be alright. Hell, he will probably live a long and productive life. How very sad indeed for the "christians" amongst us.
