Tim Johnson update

From NBC's Ken Strickland
Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson's office has issued a statement on his status.  He remains in critical condition in intensive care.  He "is recovering as expected from brain surgery and his brain pressures continue to be in the normal range," Anthony Caputy, M.D., Chairman, Department of Neurosurgery, at the George Washington University Hospital.  "Senator Johnson is sedated to allow his systems to rest and recover from the hemorrhage and we anticipate no further tests or procedures in the near future," says Vivek Deshmukh, MD, neurosurgeon.  "This is expected to continue through the holidays."
