Teresa Heinz Kerry Remains in Fair Condition, Spokesman Says

Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Secretary of State John Kerry, remains in fair condition at Massachussets General Hospital where her health “continues to improve,” according to a statement from Kerry’s personal spokesman.

“Teresa Heinz Kerry continues to improve and remains in fair condition at Massachusetts General Hospital, while doctors seek the cause of seizure-like symptoms she experienced on Sunday,” spokesman Glen Johnson said in an email.

Johnson said doctors had ruled out heart attack, stroke, or a brain tumor as causes of the seizure-like symptoms that sent Heinz Kerry to Nantucket Cottage hospital on July 7 during a family vacation. From there, she was transferred to Boston.

Johnson said Kerry would travel “briefly” to Washington today to open the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue that begins tomorrow.
