[quote]
Secretary Hillary Clinton was hospitalized today after a doctors doing a follow-up exam discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago.
She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours.
Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion. They will determine if any further action is required.
Clinton suffered a concussion earlier this month after she hit her head when she fainted because of dehydration from a stomach virus, a Clinton aide said.
No ambulance was called and she was not hospitalized, according to a state department official.
The stomach virus had caused Clinton to cancel a planned trip to North Africa and the United Arab Emirates, and also her scheduled testimony before Congress at hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Clinton originally fell ill from a stomach virus following a whirlwind trip to Europe at the beginning of the month, which caused such severe dehydration that she fainted and fell at home.
According to a U.S. official, the secretary had two teams of doctors, including specialists, examine her. They also ran tests to rule out more serious ailments beyond the virus and the concussion. During the course of the week after her concussion, Clinton was on an IV drip and being monitored by a nurse, while also recovering from the pain caused by the fall.

Exactly! Way to avoid unpleasantness before the end of her term.

She's been off her feet for weeks, which puts even younger people at risk for throwing a blood clot in/from the legs. Many clinicians put such patients on daily Lovenox (a blood thinner) injections while they're bedridden and for a couple of weeks after after discharge (it's patient/caregiver injectable.) Thing here is we don't really know where the clot is yet.

Lovenox is often contraindicated by other meds or certain conditions like a closed head injury. There are cases where such drugs turned a slow leak in/around the brain into a gusher. Not good. Without the Lovenox etc. you get the higher odds of a clot forming elsewhere.

She lost the coin flip.

You people are seriously saying she's faking a blood clot? Wow. You should all be ashamed with yourselves. What kind of twisted morality is that? Blood clots are serious and can kill people quite easily and you right-wing crazies are conspiring that she's faking it? Turn Fox News off.

I think she looks weird with long hair worn like that. Like a young girl with an old face. With her other hairstyles (shorter or a more classic brushing like [url="http://images.smh.com.au/2012/12/31/3921925/art-hillaryclinton-620x349.jpg"]this[/url]) she looks a lot more authoritative.

Hope she gets well soon though!

Right cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, a clot in one of the major venous channels between the brain and skull - in the pic below her clot is in the large vessel at the bottom.

Generally, 58% recover, 8.5% die and the rest have some degree of impairment. Specifically, those over 35-40 have much higher levels of death or impairment.

Really?! Good grief, people want to find conspiracies in everything. It's posts like these that make me embarrassed to be a member of the human race.

Can't say I'm surprised to see a lack of compassion in here.

I hope she recovers 100% also. I heard a rumor she was running for president in 2016, and if thats true, she already has my vote if she gets the nomination.

Yeah well we'll all say that when half of your family dies in a car crash. That is a horrible thing to say, every death is a sad thing.

Not really. If we get sad about every death, we would go into depression. Death happens, if they aren't related to me I don't think about it to much.

C'mon people - she has a past history of blood clots, so this and her age put her at at least a 50-50 chance of imparement or dying. Politics are one thing, but sheesh....

It's a rather convenient clot IMO. And I think theyarecomingforyou has some knowledge of what's going on..and perhaps he even was a key player in the lack of security. I believe we may need to have him go testify before congress to see how deep the rabbit hole goes...
