Troubling News of Senator Ted Kennedy

Senator Edward KennedyCNN is just reporting that Senator Ted Kennedy has been taken to the hospital “with symptoms of a stroke”.

(CNN) — Sen. Edward Kennedy was rushed to a hospital in Massachusetts Saturday morning, a well-informed, prominent Democratic source in that state told CNN.

Kennedy was transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston after spending less than an hour in the Cape Cod Hospital emergency room, a spokesman for the Cape Cod facility told CNN.

David Reilly said Kennedy was admitted to the Cape Cod emergency room around 9 a.m. ET. Massachusetts General said it had no information on Kennedy.

The source said the 76-year-old senator had “symptoms of a stroke” at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis.

UPDATE as of 9:30PM EDT:

“(CNN) — Sen. Edward Kennedy was hospitalized in Boston, Massachusetts, after suffering an apparent seizure Saturday morning, his family said.

“Preliminary tests have determined that he has not suffered a stroke and is not in any immediate danger. He’s resting comfortably, and watching the Red Sox game with his family,” said Dr. Larry Ronan, a physician at Massachusetts General Hospital.

“Over the next couple of days, Sen. Kennedy will undergo further evaluation to determine the cause of the seizure, and a course of treatment will be determined at that time,” said Ronan, who is Kennedy’s primary care physician.”

    It sound like he is doing OK. He watched the sox game, for instance.

  2. JanieBelle says:

    Yes, by all accounts he seems to be doing better and is in good hands. That’s good news.

  3. JanieBelle says:

    Oh geez. It’s apparently a brain tumor.

    That’s a disheartening twist.

  4. Several years ago, I read Lance Armstrong’s book. In that book he had a chapter or two about his cancer activism. He talked about a visit to Capitol Hill where he met with several congressman. He spoke of two in his book; one was a Republican (I don’t remember who) who talked about nothing but God and made Lance uncomfortable and angry. The other was Ted Kennedy, who Lance found very sympathetic. He talked about his own experiences with the disease (in his family) and even shed a tear.

    I really hope he gets through this!

  5. JanieBelle says:

    Me too. The story about Lance and the congressmen surprises me not one iota.

  6. Greg Laden says:

    I have a feeling that a mere brain tumor is not going to phase Teddy Kennedy. It may be the cause of his death, but he will still be Teddy Kennedy the whole way there.

  7. JanieBelle says:

    I believe that you are quite correct, Greg.
