Statement from Sen. Harry Reid

Recieved in my inbox:

As you probably have heard by now, Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota became ill yesterday and was taken to the hospital.

The thoughts and prayers of everyone here in the Senate are with Tim and his family.

Tim is getting the finest care in the world at George Washington University Hospital. I, along with Senator Daschle, were with his family last night and this morning.

Admiral John Eisold, Attending Physician of the United States Capitol just released a statement saying, "Senator Tim Johnson has continued to have an uncomplicated post-operative course. Specifically, he has been appropriately responsive to both word and touch. No further surgical intervention has been required."

As Senator Johnson continues his recovery, the Senate continues to prepare for the 110th Congress. There's a lot to do on behalf of the American people, and we are looking forward to getting to work next year.

If you would like to send Senator Johnson a get-well note you can do it by visiting:

I will make sure he receives all of your good wishes.

Thank you,

Harry Reid
