Posted on May 17, 2008
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy is recuperating at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital after suffering a seizure Saturday at his Cape Cod home. Kennedy, 76, was reportedly in good spirits later that day, spending time with family members and watching a Red Sox game on television.

On Saturday morning, Kennedy felt ill at his home and went to Cape Cod Hospital, [Kennedy spokeswoman Stephanie] Cutter said. After a discussion with his doctors in Boston, the senator was flown to Massachusetts General.
An official who declined to be identified by name, citing the sensitivity of the events, had earlier said that Kennedy had stroke-like symptoms. The hospital declined to comment on his condition.
In October, Kennedy had surgery to repair a nearly complete blockage in a major neck artery. The discovery was made during a routine examination of a decades-old back injury.
