U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has left hospital in New York after spending the New Year recovering from a blood clot between her skull and brain.
The former First Lady was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday (30Jan12) after doctors found the clot during a medical test. She is expected to make a full recovery and plans to return to work next week (beg07Jan13).
Spokesman Philippe Reines says, "The Secretary continues to recuperate at home. She had long planned to take this holiday week off, so she had no work schedule. She looks forward to getting back to the office next week and resuming her schedule."
I have been watching MSNBC slap the Right Wing around for the last few days for originally accusing Hillary of have "Benghazi fever," I wonder how long they will give her to recover before they start demanding that she testify before Congress?
I heard somebody, and I don't remember who, saying that the Republican party is essentially terrified of Clinton and are concerned that if they can't somehow stop her from getting elected SHE will do even more damage to their party than Obama has.
I find that statement pretty easy to believe.
Thank you to the doctors, nurses & staff at NewYork Presbyterian Hospital Columbia University Medical Center for taking great care of my Mom
