Doctors said the seizure suffered by the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John
Kerry wasn't caused by a heart attack, stroke or brain tumor, a spokesman said.
Kerry spokesman Glen Johnson said doctors said Teresa Heinz Kerry, 74, "continues to improve" and was in fair condition at Massachusetts General Hospital, the Boston Herald reported Wednesday.
"As evaluations continue, she, Secretary of State John Kerry and their family are deeply grateful that physicians have ruled out a variety of possible triggers or other ailments, including heart attack, stroke or a brain tumor," Johnson said.
Kerry returned to Washington Tuesday to open strategic and economic discussions with Chinese officials, the Herald said. He has been staying in his Boston home since Sunday, when his wife was flown to Massachusetts General in critical condition.
Johnson said the Kerry family was touched by an outpouring of support.
"The well-wishes have been humbling and overwhelming, including tweets and Facebook postings; flower arrangements and offers of food; and messages of comfort from other MGH patients, former staff, Senate and House colleagues and members of the executive branch, as well as many dear and longtime friends and the secretary's 2004 presidential campaign team," Johnson said.
