Hillary Clinton hospitalised with blood clot
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized Sunday after doctors discovered a blood clot during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered this month, her spokesman said.
She is expected to remain at New York Presbyterian Hospital for the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor her condition and treat her with anti-coagulants, said Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state.
“Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion,” Reines said. “They will determine if any further action is required.”
Reines did not specify where the clot was discovered.
Clinton, 65, was suffering from a stomach virus earlier this month when she fainted due to dehydration, causing the concussion.
Clinton spent the holidays with her family last week after working from home.
She was scheduled to return to work at the State Department this week after being sidelined for the past three weeks. Her illness forced her to bow out of testifying December 20 before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Deputies Thomas Nides and Bill Burns appeared in her place.
The medical setback comes as Clinton is wrapping up her busy tenure as secretary of state, during which she has logged more than 400 travel days and nearly a million miles. She plans to step down from the post if and when Sen. John Kerry — President Barack Obama’s choice to replace her — is confirmed by the Senate.

She hit her head on the floor during the fall. So the blood clot may be in her brain.
This woman has unashamedly supported the evil LTTE terrorists. She accepted their bribes through intermediaries in their election campaigns.
She hopes to contest the next Presidential election. this Divine punishment for wicked deeds?
Thank you Nicholas for adding value to the above report.
Whether you like it or not, Hillary Rodham Clinton will be sworn in as president of the United States of America in Jan 2017.
Nicholas, cannot understand your theory behind “divine punishment”. Does God ever punish followers or is God the ultimate in forgiving all the sins we cause?
Wish this lady a speedy recivery so that she can enjoy her retirement which is pretty close.
Nations such as ours can now breathe a sigh of relief.
Senator John Kerry who is succedding as Secretary of State is a close ally of Sri Lanka. Ambassador Wickremasooriya should invite John Kerry for lunch soon and serve some hot lunumiris to ensure continued support.
