Johnson suffered a brain hemorrhage Wednesday that was caused by a rare and
sometimes fatal condition. His illness came just weeks before Democrats are to take
control of the Senate by a one-seat margin.

drained the blood that had accumulated there. "It is premature to determine whether
further surgery will be required or to assess any long-term prognosis," Eisold said.
