Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has been released from the hospital after suffering a seizure during an inaugural luncheon.

Kennedy's office confirmed that on Wednesday morning he left Washington Hospital Center, where he had been resting overnight for observation. A spokeswoman says he was in good spirits and doctors wanted him to get some rest.

Doctors blamed fatigue for the seizure. Kennedy has been under treatment for a brain tumor, suffered during an inaugural luncheon after hours at events celebrating the swearing-in of President Barack Obama.

The 76-year-old Massachusetts Democrat was diagnosed last May with a particularly aggressive type of brain tumor and been treated with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
