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 that the 74-year-old Heinz Kerry suffered a seizure at the couple's home in Nantucket last weekend, but the precise cause of the seizure 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 her recovery. Her condition has been upgraded from "fair" to "good."
Kerry said in a statement that the family was blessed by the outpouring of support for his wife.
