Rose Kennedy Feeling Better

Compiled From Wire Services

Rose Kennedy, the 104-year-old matriarch of the Kennedy family, was reported feeling better Wednesday, two days after she had trouble breathing.

“Mrs. Kennedy’s condition is improved and her family feels there is no cause for immediate concern,” said Pamela Hughes, spokeswoman for Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.

The senator returned to Washington a day after flying back to Massachusetts on Tuesday to be with his mother.

Rose Kennedy’s problem did not require hospitalization and was not related to any particular illness or condition, Hughes said. She has used a wheelchair since suffering a stroke in April 1984.
