Senator Johnson Critical After Surgery
Tim Johnson is said to be in critical condition, after undergoing brain surgery last night.
Johnson suffered from bleeding in the brain caused by a congenital arteriovenous malformation, the U.S. Capitol physician said, describing the surgery as succesful.
"The senator is recovering without complication," the physician, Adm. John Eisold, said. "It is premature to determine whether further surgery will be required or to assess any long-term prognosis."
The good news appears to be that there are several ways to treat AVMs once they've been found and that there are preventative measure to prevent future bleeding.
Assuming the characterization of the surgery as "successful" was accurate, let's hope full recovery is only a matter of time.
Update: Harry Reid says Johnson really looks good.
They apparently have a higher threshold for acceptable discourse than the ladies of The View.
