Kirk recovering from stroke

Republican Senator Mark Kirk (IL), one of Israel's best friends in the Senate, is undergoing surgery for a stroke on Monday morning. Doctors estimate that he will recover, God willing.
"On Saturday, Senator Kirk checked himself into Lake Forest Hospital, where doctors discovered a carotid artery dissection in the right side of his neck," his office said in a statement.

"He was transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, where further tests revealed that he had suffered an ischemic stroke," it said. "Early this morning, the senator underwent surgery to relieve swelling around his brain stemming from the stroke. The surgery was successful.

"Due to his young age, good health and the nature of the stroke, doctors are very confident in the Senator's recovery over the weeks ahead."

The office released no other details.
A full and speedy recover to Mark Kirk.
