Vail, CO Colorado
BOSTON ” A spokeswoman for Sen. Edward Kennedy says he is conscious and talking to family after he suffered a seizure in his Cape Cod home and was flown to a Boston hospital.
The 76-year-old Massachusetts Democrat fell ill at his home Saturday morning and was rushed to a local hospital. He later was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital to determine the cause of the seizure.
Spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said he is “conscious, talking, joking with family.”
His wife, children and niece Caroline Kennedy are among those with him at the hospital.
The second longest serving member of the Senate had surgery in October to repair a nearly complete blockage in a major neck artery. The surgery is done to prevent stroke.
