    Sen. Johnson opening eyes after brain surgery
    Sen. Harry Reid says Johnson looked 'good, fine'; family encouraged

    WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson has opened his eyes and shown other small signs of recovery from brain surgery that are encouraging to his family, a spokeswoman said Friday.  [...]

    He was responding to the voice of his wife, Barbara, and following directions a few hours after the surgery. When she asked him to open his eyes, he did, and then reached out to hold her hand, said Johnson spokeswoman Julianne Fisher.

    "They are just very encouraged by the little things right now," Fisher said Friday.

    Haven't had a chance to comment on this yet, so taking my chance now to say my get well prayers are with him and his family.

    This news gives me optimism.
