Georgia State Rep. Roger Bruce =Sen Johnson
Spread this story far and wide.It will help shut down any talk of Senator Johnson being incapable of staying in office.

snip..."Georgia State Rep. Roger Bruce knows what U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson is going through. He's been there.

Bruce suffered a debilitating brain hemorrhage in 2004 and was diagnosed with a congenital arteriovenous malformation, the same illness now affecting the South Dakota Democrat.

In April of that same year, just 42 days after he passed out, Bruce went back to the State Capitol to announce plans to run for re-election. And by June, he was campaigning door to door.

Bruce said he doesn't have any lingering symptoms, though he occasionally feels an odd sensation in his head when the weather turns cold or hot. He is about to begin his third term in the Georgia House of Representatives.

"Roger did it," said his wife. "So can the senator. I just pray for them." "

1. That's terrific information. Thanks for posting it. I had high hopes
for Tim, and I know Drs are notorious for downplaying their predictions for the future of a patient. It'sgreat to hear a very positive outcome from someone who's been in the same spot.

surgeries to 'glue the veins' and stop the bleeding. Today he is fully functional and you would never know that he had such a serious affliction. I believe Senator Tim Johnson will be just fine and resume his duties in the U.S. Senate.
