U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk was in intensive care Monday after undergoing surgery to relieve swelling on his brain from a stroke that doctors said likely would make it "very difficult" for him to regain movement in his left arm and could result in facial paralysis.
Fessler said Kirk would undergo rehabilitation, but added that the "the prospects for his full physical recovery, particularly on the left side of his body, are not great."
Kirk was in intensive care at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he appeared to recognize those around him and was responding to verbal commands, Fessler said.
