It remains unclear what caused Teresa Heinz Kerry to fall ill this weekend — but her condition is improving, and doctors have ruled out some of the scarier possibilities.
A spokesman for Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that while his wife, 74, remains at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital after falling ill with seizure-like symptoms, physicians have ruled out a brain tumor, stroke or heart attack as the underlying cause.
Otherwise, the family is not planning to release anymore information until she leaves the hospital, spokesman Glen Johnson said in a statement to reporters. With his wife in stable condition, Kerry was headed to D.C. to kick off Wednesday’s U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue; other relatives remain at the hospital with her.
