BREAKING NEWS:  Hillary Clinton has a blood clot lodged between her brain and skull. The blood clot is located behind her right ear. Hillary Clinton reportedly suffered no stroke or neurological damage

The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. Clinton’s doctors say that to help dissolve the clot, they are treating her with blood thinners. They say she will be released once the medication dose has been established. Source

Here’s more from the NY Daily News:

“In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, the scan revealed that a right transverse sinus venous thrombosis had formed,” said Dr. Lisa Bardack and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi in a statement released by the State Department. “This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.”

The statement went on to say that her medical team is using blood thinners to dissolve the clot and that she is making “excellent progress.” They also expressed confidence she will make a “full recovery.”

“She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff,” the statement said.

This news comes as a new Gallup poll gives her the title of the “most admired woman” in the world, with 21 percent selecting her. First Lady Michelle Obama came in a distant second at five percent, followed by Oprah Winfrey at four percent and Condoleezza Rice with three percent.

We wish Mrs. Clinton a speedy recovery. I hope all those right wing haters who claim she was evading testimony before Congress on the Benghazi consulate attack should be ashamed of themselves.

NBC News Reporter Robert Bazell Raises Questions Hillary Clinton Blood Clot May Not Be Related to Concussion

Despite an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releasing a statement saying she is hospitalized due to a blood clot stemming from a concussion, the questions continue to swirl. Why hasn’t a statement been released by the New York Presbyterian Hospital?

The top science reporter for NBC News raised questions Monday about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hospitalization, raising the possibility the blood clot causing isn’t linked to an earlier concussion.“It’s not exactly clear what is happening with Secretary Clinton’s health,” NBC News chief science and health correspondent Robert Bazell said.

“All we have is a statement from her office. The hospital isn’t saying anything and the statement from her [office] says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she’s being treated with blood-thinning drugs,” Bazell continued. “The problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can’t be treated with blood [thinners.] So either it’s not really related to the concussion and she’s got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there’s something else going on that we’re not being told. And right now, we’re just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she’s being observed.” Source: Politico
