Teresa Heinz Kerry’s condition improves

Secretary of State’s wife had seizure; doctors seek cause

Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital on Monday upgraded the condition of Teresa Heinz Kerry from critical to fair, as they sought to determine what caused the leading philanthropist and wife of Secretary of State John F. Kerry to suffer a seizure Sunday at the family’s Nantucket home.

Heinz Kerry was rushed to Nantucket Cottage Hospital on Sunday afternoon, where she was stabilized before being transferred to Boston for a battery of tests that continued through Monday, according to several people close to the family.
