Brief Health Scare for Ted Kennedy



Massachusetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy was back at home this morning after a health scare Friday. The liberal icon, who is being treated for a malignant brain tumor, was briefly hospitalized yesterday after suffering a seizure.

He was rushed to Cape Cod Hospital after a call was received at about 5:12 p.m. from the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port. His representatives issued a statement saying doctors believed the incident was “triggered by a change in medication.” He returned home by 8 p.m.

Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki caught a picture of Kennedy, stepping out onto the front porch of his home at the compound and looking at the pea-soup fog that enveloped the waterfront.
