BOSTON (AP) - Doctors treating Massachusetts Senator Edward
Kennedy say the 76-year-old Democrat has had no further seizures
and "remains in good overall condition and is up and walking
around the hospital."
Kennedy's doctors say he will stay in Massachusetts General
Hospital in Boston for the next few days as they consider a course
of treatment for his malignant brain tumor.
Additional testing is expected to determine the specific brain
tumor type. The average survival rate ranges from less than a year
for the most advanced and aggressive cancers to about five years
for slower growing tumors.
White House press secretary Dana Perino says President Bush was
"deeply saddened" when he heard of Kennedy's tumor. She adds that
Bush will "keep Senator Kennedy in his prayers."
