- Teresa Heinz Kerry has walked out of a Boston rehabilitation hospital after successful treatment for a seizure the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry experienced early this month.
State Department spokesman Glen Johnson said Saturday that doctors said they expect the 74-year-old Heinz Kerry to complete full recovery at home after some out-patient treatment. She suffered a seizure at the couple's home in Nantucket on July 7.
Johnson previously said the precise cause has not been determined and that doctors had ruled out brain tumor, heart attack or stroke as possible triggers.
Kerry paid special tribute to members of the State Department Diplomatic Security Service who were first to respond when his wife fell ill. She was transferred to two hospitals and ultimately to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital for recovery.
