Teresa Heinz Kerry, hospitalized Sunday in Boston after suffering seizure-like symptoms at her home in Nantucket, was upgraded from fair to good condition Thursday and moved to a rehabilitation hospital.
Glen Johnson, spokesman for Mrs. Kerry's husband, said doctors have concluded Mrs. Kerry suffered a seizure, but they don't know the cause. She was transferred Thursday from Massachusetts General Hospital to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, where she will focus on completing her recovery, Mr. Johnson said.
Mrs. Kerry, 74, was hospitalized on Nantucket while there with her husband, Secretary of State John Kerry. She was later flown to Boston for further testing. Her condition has improved since Monday, when she was upgraded from serious to fair condition.
"We are blessed to have so many people care about Teresa, and by the continued grace of God and the prayer of everybody, she will soon share herself just how much she appreciates every last expression of kindness directed toward her and our family," Mr. Kerry said Thursday.
Mr. Kerry will split his time between Boston and Washington and will resume his official travel schedule soon, Mr. Johnson said.
