and has had successful surgery to relieve the swelling around the brain, done today. He is recovering in the hospital.

Get-well wishes to Senator Kirk and thoughts for his family as well!

First of all best wishes and a speedy recovery. These days if they catch a stroke early they can reverse virtually all the brain damage.

At least he will not be away from the people's business too long.

He is only 52 and they caught it early. He was also aware of the warning signs, apparently, and got to the hospital quickly enough.

Stefanovka, behave yourself!!! You know, a woman who opens her mouth to speak a lot is just a very oral type.
