Senator Kennedy Hospitalized

Cape Cod Times: Sen. Kennedy falls ill; taken to Boston hospital by helicopter

Senator Kennedy was taken by ambulance to Cape Cod Hospital at 8:30 this morning; two hours later he was medivac'ed to Mass. General Hospital. The photographs in this Cape Cod Times article appear to show a bag-valve mask being used to assist in breathing; never a good sign.

I always think of Ted Kennedy as "Uncle Ted" which is what a friend who worked for him as a staffer used to call him. He's been my Senator my entire voting life. Hang in there Uncle Ted.

Senator Kennedy had successful surgery for a partially blocked neck artery in October.
