Doctors Say Pressure Removed In Senator's Brain SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- A doctor says a medical test done this morning shows that pressure has been relieved from Senator Tim Johnson's brain and that there's no further bleeding. The second-term South Dakota senator underwent emergency brain surgery late Wednesday night for what turned out to be a brain hemorrhage. Today, the senator's surgeon says Johnson's brain pressures are normal. Doctors are labeling the surgery a success. According to a statement from the senator's office, physicians got the blood out and stabilized the bleeding. Another neurosurgeon says Johnson's progress is encouraging. The senator is stabilized -- and doctors say he is showing signs of responsiveness to the medical staff and his family. One doctor says such a hemorrhage is similar to a bruise in that it takes time to heal. Medical experts expect the senator to be in the hospital until the brain swelling goes down and his overall condition improves. Doctors also think physical therapy will be part of his recovery.
