Bayh Undergoes Surgery; Carson Announces Death of Grandfather

News came yesterday afternoon that former Indiana First Lady Susan Bayh had surgery to remove a benign tumor from her brain.

The good news is that she's expected to make a full recovery, according to WTHR.

The wife of former Governor and U.S. Senator Evan Bayh, Susan Bayh is an attorney, and she sits on a number of corporate boards and boards of organizations.  

Evan Bayh lost his mother to cancer many years ago, so it probably goes without saying that he's relieved that his wife's tumor was determined to be benign.

I wish Mrs. Bayh nothing but the best as she recovers from this health scare.

Carson Loses Grandfather
Congressman Andre Carson announced yesterday that his grandfather, Sam Carson, had passed away.  

Carson credited his grandfather, a Marine Corps veteran, for mentoring him "with strength, grace, and spirit."

Sam Carson married Julia May Porter shortly after she graduated from Attucks High School.  Of course, the Carson name has become synonymous with politics in Indianapolis over the years as Congresswoman Julia Carson elected to keep her married name even after being divorced.  The union of Sam Carson produced two children, Sam and Tanya.  Sam Carson the son has attempted to run for public office.  Tanya's son Andre grew up to be the current 7th District Congressman.

My thoughts and prayers go out to my friend, Andre Carson and all of the Carson family on the loss of Sam Carson.
