Philanthropist and wife of John Kerry was rushed to hospital Sunday


The health of philanthropist Teresa Heinz Kerry has improved at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston where the wife of Secretary of State John F. Kerry is now considered to be in fair condition, an improvement from the critical condition she was in on Sunday.

Kerry spokesman Glen Johnson released a statement shortly before noon today providing a brief update of the status of the 74-year-old Heinz Kerry, who was rushed from Nantucket to Boston Sunday after suffering a still-unexplained medical event in her home.

"After conducting tests overnight and this morning, doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital have upgraded Mrs. Teresa Heinz Kerry's condition from critical to fair," Johnson said in the statement.
