Doctor: Sen. Kennedy’s Brain Surgery a Success

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s brain surgery was successful and “accomplished our goals,” a doctor at Duke University Medical Center said Monday.

Kennedy was undergoing surgery for his cancerous brain tumor.

Kennedy surgeon Dr. Allan Friedman said Monday his patient was awake during the 3 1/2-hour procedure, and should experience no permanent neurological effects from the surgery.

Praying for him… and God… maybe you could talk to him while he’s unconscience and he could have a “Saul” moment… please.:yup:


Kennedy walking hospital halls after brain surgery

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy enjoyed “a restful night’s sleep” and was walking hospital hallways on Tuesday, one day after undergoing an aggressive brain surgery aimed at slicing away at a cancerous tumor to give chemotherapy and radiation treatments a chance to work.

Let us pray for him.

Wow, has anyone else ever considered what a crazy thing brain surgery is…they sawed open his skull and sliced something off his brain and he was walking around later the same day?

And he was awake to a certain degree during the whole thing!!:bigyikes:
