Teresa Heinz Kerry is steadily recovering from a seizure she suffered in July and said that Lumosity -- the brain game app for iPad -- played a big part. "I've got two foreign ministers doing it," Heinz Kerry gushed to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Mackenzie Carpenter during a recent trip to Pittsburgh.
The wife of Secretary of State John Kerry discovered the helpful iPad app while watching TV over the summer. "It was all about [Anthony] Weiner and that mayor from San Diego, and I thought, I can't believe this is happening in this country," she told the PG. The bright side was -- between coverage of the scandals -- Heinz Kerry saw a Lumosity commercial and had her nurse download it to her iPad.
These days, she's feeling much better. "I have a great feeling of gratitude in my heart that my brain is still working," she said, explaining that her seizure was brought on after she fell and suffered a concussion four years ago. And now, the biggest bummer for Heinz Kerry is that she can't drink alcohol anymore. "I'm mad about that," she laughed.
Corrected on 10/29/13: A previous version of this story incorrectly identified the name of the iPad app Lumosity.
