I hope that Senator Ted Kennedy’s brain tumor hasn’t resurfaced. At Obama’s Inaugural luncheon, it is being reported that he started to have violent convulsions from an apparent seizure. My prayers go out to both the senator & his family. Here’s more from CNN:
” Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, collapsed Tuesday afternoon during a luncheon for President Barack Obama in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall.
Paramedics were called to the scene at 2:35 p.m. ET.
Kennedy, who appeared to be suffering from a seizure, was transported to a hospital.
“Sen. Kennedy had a seizure” which “lasted a while,” a Republican House member told CNN.
The member said Kennedy was still experiencing seizures when he was put in a wheelchair and taken out through the Rayburn room, located to the side of Statuary Hall.
Kennedy, 76, was first elected to the Senate in 1962.
The source did not know whether President Obama saw it happening because “there was still a lot of talking” and the program was still going on; the incident happened at the end of lunch.
This source was sitting at table in front of Kennedy and said Kennedy was sitting with former Vice President Walter Mondale and Sen. Daniel Inouye.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here:(http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/01/20/inauguration.kennedy.collapse/index.html
