Indiana governor suffers a massive stroke

Indiana Gov. Frank O'Bannon suffered a massive stroke in his Chicago hotel room Monday, and his chances of recovery were uncertain, the neurosurgeon who operated on him said.

"The next 24 to 48 hours is going to be critical," said Dr. Wesley Yapor, who operated on the 73-year-old governor. "We're hoping he's going to recover function. How much, we don't know."
