Kennedy Walking Hospital Halls After Brain Surgery

Sen. Edward Kennedy had "a restful night's sleep" after brain surgery and is recovering with no complications.

In a statement issued to The Associated Press on Tuesday, aides to the Massachusetts Democrat said, "He is experiencing no complications, and has been walking the hallways, spending time with family and actively keeping up with the news of the day."

Kennedy is expected to leave Duke University Medical Center in Durham next week.

The 76-year-old Kennedy was diagnosed with a malignant glioma in the left parietal lobe of his brain after suffering a seizure on May 17 at his home in Hyannis Port, Mass. He underwent 31/2 hours of surgery on Monday, during which doctors sliced away at the tumor.
