Word is coming out that Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy has been hospitalized with stroke like symptoms. Those of us in South Dakota have been through a similar situation almost 18 months ago when Tim Johnson had his own health issues. Hopefully Senator Kennedy will be fine as well.
U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy was airlifted to a Boston hospital Saturday morning after suffering stroke-like symptoms at the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport, Mass.
He was first rushed to Cape Cod Hospital. After being in the emergency room for two hours there, he was transported to Barnstable Airport and was then flown to Massachusetts General Hospital.
UPDATE: The latest news on Kennedy’s condition is much better than first thought. Apparently he suffered a seizure and not a stroke and was well enough this afternoon to catch part of the Red Sox game from his hospital room.
