Roger's Medical Corner

Good news for everyone but Mickey Kaus. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) is continuing to recover from his recent brain hemorrhage:

WASHINGTON — Sen. Tim Johnson has been transferred out of intensive care and has said some words, his doctor said Thursday, nearly a month after the South Dakota Democrat suffered a brain hemorrhage.

An MRI on Wednesday showed the speech centers in the senator's brain were spared injury in the initial hemorrhage Dec. 13, said Johnson's neurosurgeon, Dr. Vivek Deshmukh.

"This is confirmed by the fact that he is following commands and has started to say words," Deshmukh said in a written statement released by Johnson's office.
