Hillary Clinton discharged from hospital

Posted by: Reuters, Uploaded: 3rd January 2013

NEW YORK: Hillary Clinton was discharged from hospital after being treated for a blood clot between her brain and skull for almost 4 days.

Mrs Clinton was admitted to New York-Presbyterian hospital on Sunday and was treated with blood thinners to dissolve the clot in the vein behind the right ear.

The State Department announced on Sunday that Clinton was in a New York hospital for treatment of a blood clot that stemmed from a concussion she suffered in mid-December.

The concussion was itself the result of an earlier illness, described by the State Department as a stomach virus she had picked up during a trip to Europe that led to dehydration and a fainting spell after she returned to the United States.

In a statement released by the State Department on Monday, Clinton’s doctors said they were confident she would make a full recovery and that she would be released from the hospital once the correct dosage of blood thinners had been determined.
