Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton in hospital with blood clot after fall
Posted on 12/30/2012 6:12:24 PM PST by traumer
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to hospital in New York with a blood clot, officials say.
Mrs Clinton suffered a concussion earlier this month after fainting and falling down.
At the time, she was reported to have had a stomach virus and to have passed out after becoming dehydrated.
Mrs Clinton is due to stand down as secretary of state before US President Barack Obama officially begins his second term in January.
Doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up examination on Sunday, her spokesman Philippe Reines said.
Mrs Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants. She was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where she will remain for the next 48 hours so that doctors can monitor her medication.
She is expected back at her desk on Monday, Mr Reines said.
Mrs Clinton is due to give evidence before a Congressional committee on 10 January in connection with the attack in September on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi.
The US ambassador to Libya and three American officials were killed in the incident.
Mrs Clinton was appointed secretary of state at the start of Mr Obama's first term, in January 2009.
Her most recent foreign trip was to Dublin earlier this month.

“I do not recall....”
she is running scared...I believe this is all cover up, other wise they would show her being wheeled into an emergency room and Bill and Chelsea on her tail following and crying...
I believe nothing from any of them...starting with B.Hussein Obama.
She’s a drunk.
This will rule out any future presidential run for her due to her health risk.
we pray for them to do the govern justly . if we don’t pray for them, what chance do they have?
Indeed, testifying is probably the least of her concerns now, since today's National Enquirer has a lead article, at pp 10 & 11, (no link available) entitled, "Hillary Clinton BRAIN CANCER DRAMA! Memory loss and vision agony." The Enquirer has followed up on its website by adding the story about the blood clot. The article says she's suffered severe headaches, blackouts, and memory lapses, and that those symptoms have recently increased. As a result, she's secretly checked into a hospital for an extensive series of tests. If the blood clot is connected to this, it means she's a lot farther down the road to the one way journey none of us wants to take than we've been led to believe.
It doesn't surprise me that the Enquirer is the source to break this story since it seems to be the first one to publish things like this about high ranking politicians, just as it as the first to break the John Edwards story.
Don’t worry, Hillary. Obama will make sure you’re taken care of. Just give him 22 hours or so.
Yep. She needs more time to craft the best story possible. Wonder if Bill or Huma are with her.
Sounds like an SIE (Subpoena-Induced Embolism).
During the Salem witch trials, the defendant was adjudged to be innocent if she drowned since we all know that witches cannot drown.
By the same token, I believe Her Thighness will be clearly innocent if she dies of this clot.
I hope she’s innocent.
assuming it’s all true, it probably was the clot that caused the other stuff.
Great medical coverage considering it is on a Sunday just before New Years. I think she had a small stroke early on and is now inoculating public opinion.
I dislike the Clintons as much as the rest of you, but am withholding any judgment on this until or if we get the truth.
If she is seriously ill, then she needs our prayers. If she’s seriously lying - then she needs our prayers.
I don’t know what to think giving their past history (present as well) of lying, but sure don’t want to bring a false accusation against anyone.
So, I choose to sit on the sidelines regarding this issue.
Which “physician” is signing off on this?
My concern when she does croak is what’ll happen to the FReepers with her name in their nicks?!
