Sharon out of surgery

From the Associated Press via Drudge Report:

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had emergency brain surgery for five hours Friday after doctors detected further bleeding and increasing pressure, a hospital official said without giving details on the premier's condition.

Sharon, 77, then was taken from the operating room for a brain scan, Hadassah Hospital spokeswoman Yael Bossem-Levy said.

We continue to pray for his prompt recovery.
