BREAKING: Sen. Ted Kennedy Rushed To Hospital

Sen. Ted Kennedy


Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) was hospitalized early this morning with “stroke-like symptoms,” according to the Associated Press.

Authorities recieved a 911 call at about 8:15 a.m. this morning from the Kennedy home at Hyannisport. Senator Kennedy was rushed to a nearby hospital on Cape Cod, then flown to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston for treatment.

The 76 year-old Senator is now undergoing a battery of tests at the Boston hospital, while family members, friends and an army of reporters eagerly await word of his condition.

One bit of hopeful news, at least for now: the Kennedy family released a statement about an hour ago saying that it appears Senator Kennedy did not suffer a stroke, but he did have a seizure. They remain “guardedly optimistic” and hopeful that within the next 24-48 hours, we will know more.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available…everyone here at sends out our prayers to the Kennedy family. We know Teddy’s mighty tough, and have absolute faith he will pull though this.

I’m a bit confused…Fox News is reporting he had 2 seizures…one at home, then another one during helitransport to the hospital. CNN says he only had 1 seizure. Which is it?

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and the Senator.
