"U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted to hospital with blood clot following concussion".

9:29 pm - 12/30/2012

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has been admitted to a New York hospital after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month.

Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines says her doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up exam Sunday. Reines says Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants.

Clinton was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital so doctors can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours.

Reines says doctors will continue to assess Clinton’s condition, “including other issues associated with her concussion.”

Freaky. I assume however that if anyone can prevent a stroke, it's someone with that level of care. That's the implication, right? That she's on blood thinners or something to break up the clot?

I suppose that might be a common symptom after a concussion but most people aren't monitored closely enough to know. My kid had a pretty bad one and so did a a friend's recently and in neither case was there follow-up.

Reines says Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants.

It states in the article she's being treated with blood thinners.

After Bush Sr. has been in intensive care for "minor pneumonia" for like a month, I'm kind of freaking out about this. I really hope she's okay and gets okay-er fast.

Bush is much older, and there's really not such a thing as minor pneumonia in a man that age... I'm hoping that since Ms. Clinton is both younger and healthier, she pulls through just fine.

Stay with us, Madam Secretary! We need you!

Prayer circle and good thoughts!

I hope she's okay.

I hope she's okay but apart of feels like her people are downplaying like something more serious is going on. But I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

I really hope there isn't any truth to that National Enquirer brain cancer story :(

All my best to her. I hope it's nothing serious and she recovers soon.

D: I hope she recovers quickly! I also hope there's no truth to any of the rumors that it's more serious than a blood clot. I first saw this pop up on my facebook feed and naturally, there were people talking about how they hope she dies. I just can't with people. /smh

:( I just can't understand that. There are public figures I hate, really loathe, and I don't wish death on them -- I just wish they'd fade away into obscurity and leave the rest of us alone.

i missed the news the first time around - how did she get a concussion in the first place?
kaelstra 31st-Dec-2012 04:55 am (UTC)
I found this article:


Which says she was dehydrated after she had a stomach bug and fainted and got a concussion then. I guess she hit her head when she passed out. :(

Madam Secretary, please pull through! WE NEED YOU. You're one of my heroes, seriously.

I think she'll be okay. She had a clot once before when Bill was running, I think during a primary season? It's been a while, but she's got a history. I heard them talking about her schedule on MSNBC earlier and I just can't believe how much work she does. The woman does more in one day than people half her age manage in a month. Yikes.
