Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Secretary of State John Kerry, was upgraded to fair condition at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Kerry was initially in critical but stable condition after suffering a seizure of some kind.
A person in close contact with the family said Kerry was hospitalized Sunday after showing symptoms consistent with a seizure. The person was not authorized to speak publicly about her condition and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
“She is undergoing further evaluation and Secretary of State John Kerry, her son, and other family members remain with Mrs. Heinz Kerry at the hospital in Boston, as they have been since she became ill,” Kerry spokesman Glen Johnson said in a statement.
