WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton continues to recover in a New York hospital where she's being treated for a blood clot in her head.
Her doctors say that blood thinners are being used to dissolve the clot and that they are confident she will make a full recovery. Clinton did not suffer a stroke or neurological damage from the clot, which formed after she suffered a concussion during a fainting spell at her home in early December, doctors said in a statement Monday.
Clinton, 65, was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday when the clot turned up on a follow-up exam, Clinton spokesman Phillipe Reines said. The clot is in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. She will be released once the medication dose for the blood thinners has been established, the doctors said.
