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.
