Teresa Heinz Kerry Hospitalized, in ‘Critical but Stable’ Condition

Late Sunday, sad news crossed the wire for the family of Secretary of State John Kerry:

Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and heir to a ketchup company fortune, was hospitalized in critical but stable condition Monday, a day after showing symptoms consistent with a seizure, a person in close contact with the family said.

Heinz Kerry was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on Sunday night after doctors at a hospital on Massachusetts’ Nantucket Island stabilized her, said Glen Johnson, a spokesman for Kerry. The secretary of state was with his 74-year-old wife as an ambulance first transported her to the island hospital, and also during her transfer to the Boston facility.

A spokesman for Nantucket Cottage Hospital said Heinz Kerry arrived in critical condition, although doctors were able to stabilize her.

This is a time to put politics aside. I am sure I speak for everyone at ViralRead when I say our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Kerry family.
