Ailing Heinz Kerry moved to rehab
BOSTON (AP) — Teresa Heinz Kerry has been moved to a rehabilitation hospital in Boston as the condition of the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry continues to improve.
State Department spokesman Glen Johnson said Thursday that doctors have determined Heinz Kerry, 74, suffered a seizure at the couple’s home in Nantucket last weekend, but the precise cause has not been determined. Doctors previously ruled out brain tumor, heart attack or stroke as possible triggers.
Johnson said Heinz Kerry has been transferred from Massachusetts General Hospital to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, where she will continue recovery. Her condition has been upgraded from “fair” to “good.”
Kerry said his family was touched by the outpouring of support for his wife.
Johnson said Kerry will split his time between Boston and Washington, and resume his official travel schedule soon.
