A little more than one year after Senator Ted Kennedy was given 90 days to live, the Hill is now reporting that his brain cancer is in remission and he’ll be returning to Washington after the Memorial Day recess:
Sen. Edward Kennedy’s brain cancer is in remission, and the Massachusetts Democrat is expected back in the Senate after the Memorial Day recess, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday that he spoke with Kennedy’s wife and was told the 77-year-old lawmaker will return to work full time during the first week of June.
Please share widely!
I saw that as well. Not much details in the MSM, yet. Great news. Glad to have him back, and just in time.
p>Go Ted Go!
I also just saw this. I am so pleased. WE NEED HIM in this health care fight. Knock some heads in Senator!!!
p>I hope his good prognosis continues, best wishes to his family.
I’m thrilled to hear this. Here’s to Ted!
I’m getting more and more tired of Reid.
Harry Reid is apparently employing wishful thinking. MCRD related the news here in a comment, which I had to delete b/c it reposted the entire AP story. The relevant quote I put in the promotion comment above.
Well there is still always hope.
…MCRD actually had worthwhile information to contribute for once?!
Having been far too exposed to cancer battles over the last 8 years, my thoughts and prayers for Ted and his family. However, seeing outsiders (when you know the reality is far bleaker) throw out off the cuff comments that all is well only belittles the struggle that he is going through.
p>I’m certainly not a fan of Ted Kennedy, but I do respect what he is facing. If you want to spin his battle into some sort of rallying cry for Health Care Reform, so be it, although I can’t help thinking back to the end of Steinbeck’s “In Dubious Battle”. Respect his dignity.
