Good News: Senator Johnson Is Improving

Senator Johnson is improving after his recent operation to repair bleeding and a congenital blood vessel problem in his brain. Here's the story from Kate Zernike of The New York Times:

Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota marked his 60th birthday Thursday in the intensive care unit at George Washington University Hospital, where he remains in critical but stable condition two weeks after surgery to stop bleeding in his brain.

“Senator Johnson’s overall general medical condition has improved, and he is gradually being weaned from the sedation,” Vivek Deshmukh, the neurosurgeon who performed the operation, said in a statement released by Mr. Johnson’s office. “He is opening his eyes and is responsive to his wife.”


Let's hope the senator's progress continues.

I'll second that, and not just for the obvious political-advantage reasons. Johnson by all accounts is a really nice, honest and decent guy. We can't afford to lose any of those from the Senate of either party.
