Kennedy Taken to Hospital
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) was hospitalized today in Massachusetts after suffering what his office described as a mild seizure caused by a change in medication. Kennedys office said he is expected to return to his home in Hyannis Port, Mass., tonight.
Senator Kennedy experienced a mild seizure at home in Hyannis Port today and was taken to Cape Cod Hospital for examination, the statement said. Doctors believe the incident was triggered by a change in medication. Senator Kennedy will return home tonight and looks forward to watching the debate.
Kennedy, who made a surprise appearance at the Democratic National Convention in Denver last month, has only returned once to the Senate to cast a vote on Medicare legislation since he was diagnosed to have a brain tumor in May after suffering a seizure.
Kennedy plans to return to the Senate in January.
