Teresa Heinz Kerry was discharged from a Boston hospital Saturday, almost three weeks after suffering a seizure.
The 74-year-old wife of Secretary of State John Kerry was hospitalized July 7 after falling ill at her Nantucket home, and the Boston Globe now reports that Kerry released a statement Saturday saying his wife is expected to make a full recovery at home after some out-patient treatment. She is expected to return to her civics work following "a period of rest."

Teresa Heinz, wife of the U.S. Sen. John Kerry, revealed Wednesday she has been treated for breast cancer and urged women to get regular mammograms that she says could save their lives.
"The cancer was detected at an early stage thanks to a mammogram and the work of a remarkable physician who insisted on investigating beyond what the mammogram could show," Heinz, 71, writes in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I have had two operations and my prognosis for a full recovery is good."
She says her illness has "reminded me to slow down, cherish family and friends, and deepen my sense of life as a gift to be unwrapped each day with newfound joy and hope."
