Senator continues on recovery path

January 04, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Weeks after suffering a brain hemorrhage, Sen. Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) is improving but still needs a ventilator at night to help him breathe, his doctor said.

Dr. Vivek Deshmukh said there was no evidence the tangled arteries that triggered the senator's stroke remained and there was no need for further surgery. Johnson's long-term prognosis was still unclear.
