Relatives of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister of President Kennedy, were summoned to a Massachusetts hospital Monday, a source close to the family told CNN.
"It's minute to minute right now," the source said.
Shriver, 88, founder of the Special Olympics, has been in the hospital for several days, her family said, and her relatives were summoned after she suffered a setback, the source said.
Some members of the family flew in to Cape Cod Hospital last week to be with Shriver, including her daughter, Maria Shriver, and her husband, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a source said earlier. She was in critical but stable condition then.

Biting tongue. No comment.
That being said, I do hope that at some point this family gets off stage.
She’ll get the BEST CARE POSSIBLE and she deserves it.
God bless her. She has done a lot in this life that I agree with. If this is her time, then may she pass peacefully.
Despite my feeling toward the politics of this family, my prayers go out to them.
She looks pretty scary in that picture, and I certainly am not a Kennedy fan, but I do admire her for one thing - starting Special Olympics. Because of that I will offer sympathy to the family.
Why doesn’t the media just leave them all alone....
She always seemed like a decent enough person. Or do you not want to wish her well because you don’t like her family?
Special Olympics will not exist when 0bamadeathcare is made law. No more fun and games! The disabled will be eliminated because their care will be too costly. They may keep a token or two around but for the mnost part, this group of citizens is history and forced abortion will be part of the picture too. A baby like Trig Palin will simply not be allowed to be born.
I’m willing to bet her own brother will use her as an example of how all Americans should have the same health care as Eunice.
She tried to do some good in this world...so god speed.
Have a talk with God while you are up there about this Obamanation and what he will do to those you tried to help...
What is the carbon footprint of having your family summoned to your bedside as you near your final moments on this earth? What happens if you manage to survive for a few more weeks or months and they go home, only to come back at a later time? Wouldn’t it be better if we could schedule this sort of thing in advance, saving medical costs as well as the cost of short-notice travel?
ObamaCare (TM) is the answer. We can schedule your termination for any time after your 50th birthday. All you have to do is sneeze, and we’ll be there with a pill.
(In case I have to say it: </Sarc>)
Speaking of offering sympathies, could whomever posted that photo be any less sympathetic? I mean, take a good hard look at that photo because that’s what the rich looked like when they got old, before plastic surgery turned them into wax freaks.
The poor woman in that photo looks like the calcified remains of one of the Titanic victims, frozen in time.
If they cremate Jabba when it's time for his dirt nap he'll likely burn for 3 or 4 weeks.
I read a similar story last week, she ain’t letting go easy. I guess when you realize you can’t take it with you...
I must say though...her hair sure looks nice!
I wonder if he would hit some critical mass threshhold and melt the core?
Well...at least she didn’t use plastic....and started a good organization....(If you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all....my Mom taught me.)
So how many times will she register to vote next year?
“If you cant say anything good, dont say anything at all.”
Too bad the lefty doesn’t share your philosophy.
As long as old Teddy hangs on — I am really hoping he holds on for quite a while. The longer he can inactively fill that senate seat, the better.
She gratefully accepts the world’s best, most expensive medical treatment while supporting Obama’s DeathCare (tm). What’s wrong with this picture?
They must be summoning to the hospital for Teddy’s death, cuz according to the picture it looks like Eunice is already about 20 years dead.
You are probably correct.
“Biting tongue. No comment.”
Same here as difficult as it is.
She really looks pretty awful in that picture for sure.
From my head to your mouth. I was just thinking about the lottery that must have been held in Hyannis: One of us has to go in order to show how important healthcare is...Eunice, I think its your turn.
Whoa geez is she ugly...well look on the bright side...thats what the governators wife will look like in 30 years.
I thought they were summond on Friday????
“She always seemed like a decent enough person.”
From what I know about her, I agree. Seems to be a very likable person who has lived as normally as one can while being in the Kennedy spotlight. Prayers for her and the family.
She was my pick in Howie Carr’s death pool last week, but I couldn’t get in.
Nice to see the Ghouls have arrived safely...
When I was single, I had a girlfriend with a Downs child. That child had special gifts that were God given, and was a delight to all that ever met her. The left would have required forced abortion, or euthanasia for the child. And, yes, she participated in the Special Olympics and brought home awards for her accomplishments.
Special Olympics: probably the only good thing to come from the Kennedy family
God Bless you Eunice, you did something very worth while for humanity and stayed above the fray.
They were summoned from the far reaches on Friday. Today they are being summoned from the sailboats, ballgames, taverns and so forth nearby.
She was already taken.
You might want to try Robert Novak. No news about him for a while.
The last time that I saw a picture of Mrs. Goobernater, she was pretty rough looking.
She was cute. Great hair, too.
I'm not a Republican, they are not conservative enough for me
Shriver will have a big, splashy, Kennedy Mafia funeral. Hundreds of pro-abortion “Catholics” will troop up to receive Communion in front of TV cameras, providing the pro-abortion American Catholic church another PR victory over the Roman Catholic Church.
Archbishop Sean O’Malley will be discovered the day after the funeral, sucking his thumb, curled up in a pantry in his residence.
Boy- oh boy- Sure can see Maria in that face, can’t we?
Eunice was a looker...
Correction: Three years.
She also was pro-life.
All you have to remember is the "Special Olympics" and the joy and extreme happiness that it brings it's participants.
The only Kennedy who believed that Down Syndrome kids weren't abortion candidates.
You’re right. I was biting my tongue to avoid making a comment about how she would not have lasted this long under Obamacare.
