Sen. Ted Kennedy remains in a Boston hospital today, four days after a seizure whose cause remains undiagnosed, the Herald reports. Results of medical tests done on the 76-year-old Democrat are expected today; Kennedy is likely to stay at Massachusetts General for a few more days before returning to his Cape Cod home, a family spokeswoman said.

"He's a very tough guy, in terms of taking on any kind of challenge, and I think he's in a really good mood," said Bob Shrum, a Democratic consultant in contact with the Kennedys. "The only thing I'd suspect is that he'd rather be sailing or on the Senate floor than lying in a bed in the hospital." (Read more Ted Kennedy stories.)
