DURHAM, N.C. -- Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., was walking the day after he underwent brain surgery at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., his office said Tuesday.

"Senator Kennedy had a restful night's sleep and is recuperating well from (Monday's) procedure," the senator's office said in a statement posted on USA Today's Web site.

"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," the statement said.

Kennedy underwent surgery Monday at the Durham, N.C., facility, known as a leader in brain tumor surgery. He is expected to be hospitalized for about a week, then return to Massachusetts for radiation and chemotherapy treatments at Massachusetts General Hospital.
