WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, is scheduled to be released from the hospital Wednesday after suffering a seizure the day before.

Kennedy collapsed Tuesday during a luncheon for President Obama in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall.

Dr. Edward Aulisi, chairman of the neurosurgery department at Washington Hospital Center, said Kennedy's doctors "believe the incident was brought on by simple fatigue."

2. Thank God. Yesterday was so scary.

I'm so glad he was at the inauguration, but he needs to be careful and take it easy while recovering. Seizures are traumatic and can cause further injury/problems in and of themselves.

And we need Teddy around for as long as we are blessed to have him.
