Sen. Edward Kennedy's office released a statement from Dr. Edward Aulisi, chairman of neurosurgery at Washington Hospital Center, where Kennedy is recovering from a seizure.

Sen. Edward Kennedy experienced a seizure today while attending a luncheon for President Barack Obama in the U.S. Capitol. After testing, we believe the incident was brought on by simple fatigue. Senator Kennedy is awake, talking with family and friends, and feeling well. He will remain at the Washington Hospital Center overnight for observation, and will be released in the morning.
