ANOTHER UPDATE on Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD)
Update II: CNN is reporting that Senator Johnson suffered from "congenital arteriovenous malformation," a condition which causes arteries and veins to grow abnormally large. The condition requires immediate surgery. They are calling his condition critical because anyone who has come out of brain surgery is considered to be in critical condition. As a side note, Thaddaeus Toad suffered from the same when he was 16. He made a speedy and perfect recovery, and is good as new today. Good luck and Godspeed Senator Johnson.
