Just wanted to provide a brief follow up from yesterday (here). The almost four hour surgery to cut down the size of Senator Kennedy's brain tumor was successful. He is now recovering at Duke University Medical Center and will return home to MA in about a week.

He has a long road ahead of him though, as this was only the first step in his cancer therapy.

In the following days, Kennedy will probably be given drugs to prevent brain swelling and seizures, which are possible complications of the surgery. The senator will also be closely watched for bleeding and blood clots, because strokes are also a risk, though they are uncommon.

After a brief recuperation, he will begin targeted radiation at Massachusetts General Hospital and chemotherapy treatment," his doctor, Dr. Allan Friedman, said in a statement following Monday's procedure. "I hope that everyone will join us in praying for Sen. Kennedy to have anuneventful and robust recovery.

Best Wishes to the Kennedy Family for a speedy recovery for the Senator.
