Teresa Heinz Kerry Moved To Rehab Facility

Teresa Heinz Kerry Moved To Rehab Facility

Secretary of State John Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, was moved to a rehabilitation facility Thursday following her hospitalization for a seizure-like episode she suffered over the weekend, CBS reported.

"Teresa Heinz Kerry and her family are very pleased that her condition has been upgraded from 'fair' to 'good,' allowing her move today from Massachusetts General Hospital to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston for the next phase of her recovery," State Department spokesman Glen Johnson said in a statement.

2. Heartening news

And Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital has an excellent reputation (it's in a pleasant spot, too, which should promote healing even more)
Speedy recovery, Teresa.

BOSTON (AP) — The wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has walked out of a Boston rehabilitation hospital after successful treatment for a seizure she experienced earlier this month.

State Department spokesman Glen Johnson said Saturday that doctors expect 74-year-old Teresa Heinz Kerry to complete her recovery at home after some out-patient treatment. She suffered a seizure at the couple’s home in Nantucket on July 7.

Johnson previously said the cause of the seizure had not been determined but doctors had ruled out a brain tumor, heart attack or stroke.

Kerry thanked members of the State Department Diplomatic Security Service who first responded when his wife fell ill. She was transferred to two hospitals and ultimately to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital for recovery.

The family does not plan to additional comment.
