United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has left New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Wednesday evening after being treated for a blood clot in her head which was discovered on Monday during a follow-up exam by her doctors, according to ABC News.
According to the United States Department of State Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Philippe Reines, “<Mrs. Clinton> is eager to get back to the office.”
The doctors have reported that Clinton has responded well to blood thinners which have dissolved the clot. They are quite confident that she will make a full recovery.
The medical incidents began about a month ago when Hillary Clinton had flu-like symptoms which caused her to dehydrate. Following the cancellation of global trips and Benghazi-related hearings on Capitol Hill, her doctors ordered her to rest at home. During that restful period in her home, she fainted which caused a concussion – and thereby likely was the major cause of the blood clot in the space between the brain and the skull behind her right ear.
Doctors Lisa Bardack and Gigi El-Bayoumi have said that Mrs. Clinton has made excellent progress and that she is in good spirits.
