"Damn .. I hate to hear this."<br><br>I'll bet the Kopecne's are also all broken up about it... <br><br><br>The Bill of Rights doesn't grant us our rights, it merely enumerates them.

Personally, I don't wish ill health or misfortune to fall on anyone whether or not I happen to like them or their opinions.<br><br>

Dr now says it was NOT a stroke but a kind of seizure.<br><br> Ted Kennedy hospitalized after seizure <br><br>well I hope he recovers... even though I lean left of center on most social issues .. I'm not a huge Ted Kennedy fan. I loved his 2 brothers, but Ted is ... well Ted! <br><br>David (OFI)

From the Cape Cod Times today.<br><br>I'll bet he didn't have to wait as long in the Cape Cod Hospital Emergency Room to see a doctor as I did when I fractured my elbow last summer. <br><br>

To be fair, ER triage ranks life threatening situations high priority (heart attack, severe trauma, etc.) over non-life threatening injuries. I'd assume that a 70+ year old with a seizure would be somewhere in the middle for someone with no notoriety. Seizures at any age are not good.<br><br>

Seizures are almost as good as chest pain to get to the front of the line in an ER. Even if I am going to the ER for a broken finger I am going to complain of chest pains.<br><br>But an ER is something you never want to have to visit in the United States unless you like to bleed on waiting room floors. Getting sick during the week and go to your health care provider. Whenever I got sick on Cape Cod I held my guts in and waited to Monday morning to get back to Boston. <br><br>
