Overnight Hospital Stay For Sen. Kennedy

WASHINGTON (AP) - Doctors are blaming fatigue for the seizure
that Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, ill with a brain tumor, suffered
during a post-inauguration luncheon for President Barack Obama.
Dr. Edward Aulisi, Washington Hospital Center's neurosurgery
chairman, says Kennedy is awake, talking with family and friends
and feeling well.
In a statement released by Kennedy's office, Aulisi said:
"After testing, we believe the incident was brought on by simple
fatigue."
Kennedy will remain at the hospital overnight for observation
and go home in the morning.
