BOSTON (AP) - Ted Kennedy's wife says his cancer treatment has
added a new word to her husband's vocabulary: "fatigue."
She says that's the only side effect he's been experiencing
during treatment for brain cancer. The Massachusetts senator is
midway through six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy.
In an e-mail to family and friends sent last week, Vicki Kennedy

disease with "his trademark grit and determination." She says
after his morning treatments at Massachusetts General Hospital,
Kennedy frequently goes sailing on his schooner "Mya."
The e-mail was obtained by The Associated Press from a Kennedy
Vicki Kennedy says her husband describes his cancer as "a
bear." But she calls him "a lion," adding that she's "betting
on the lion."
