Heinz Kerry discharged from hospital, expected to recover
BOSTON — Teresa Heinz Kerry on Saturday walked out of a Boston rehabilitation hospital nearly three weeks since she had a seizure at her home on Nantucket.
“It was amazing, a miracle,” the heir to the Heinz ketchup fortune and wife of Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement.
The 74-year-old is expected to make a full recovery at home with out-patient treatment, according to Glen Johnson, a State Department spokesman.
Doctors ruled out a brain tumor, heart attack or stroke as the cause.
Heinz Kerry, the widow of former Sen. John Heinz, thanked the staff of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston.
“They are the kindest people, who love what they do and do it superbly well.”
Heinz Kerry has an estate in Fox Chapel and is the chair of The Heinz Endowments, Downtown.
