Ted Kennedy Brain Surgery 'Successful'
Edward Kennedy is reportedly still alive after more than three hours of brain surgery today at Duke University. The 76-year-old senator will still need all kinds of chemo and radiation and god knows what else, but it is pretty much impossible to kill Ted Kennedy.
The AP reports:
Kennedy surgeon Dr. Allan Friedman says Monday his patient was awake during the 3 1/2-hour procedure, and should experience no permanent neurological effects from the surgery.
Jesus! He was awake during brain surgery? The Associated Press also reports that he called his wife right after the surgeons were finished. This is what he reportedly said: "I feel like a million bucks. I think I'll do that again tomorrow."
So, the surgery did make him insane. Hang in there, Teddy.
