Kennedy to Undergo Brain Surgery Today

Via the Boston Globe: "Senator Edward M. Kennedy is undergoing surgery for his malignant brain tumor at Duke University this morning, his office announced today. ... In the weeks and months after the surgery, Kennedy will begin a regimen of radiation and chemotherapy at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, according to the statement."

Surgery was not originally cited as a possibility after his diagnosis was first announced, but evidently further tests revealed it to be a viable option. The surgery will last six hours.

Sending good and healing thoughts in Senator Kennedy's direction...
