Teresa Heinz Kerry, chair of The Heinz Endowments and wife of Secretary of State John Kerry, was discharged from a Boston hospital today, just under three weeks after she suffered a seizure at their Nantucket home, a State Department spokesman said.

Mrs. Heinz Kerry, 74, is expected to make a full recovery from the July 7 seizure following additional outpatient treatment, spokesman Glen Johnson said.

"I'm extremely grateful for the quality of care Teresa received," Mr. Kerry said in the statement.

Mrs. Heinz Kerry thanked her doctors and caregivers. "They are the kindest people, who love what they do and do it superbly well," she said.

Mrs. Heinz Kerry was treated at a Nantucket hospital and another in Boston before ultimately being discharged from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

Mr. Johnson previously said the cause of the seizure had not been determined but doctors had ruled out a brain tumor, heart attack or stroke. The family does not plan to comment further on her health, he said.
