Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's blood clot is between her brain and skull behind right ear
CNN just reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's blood clot is behind her right ear between the skull and the brain. I believe they called it a right venous transverse sinus thrombosis.
She is reported to be in good spirits, and with her family and should make a full recovery.
She did not have a stroke nor has she suffered any neurological damage, and she is doing "quite well."
A follow-up doctor said this is within the blood system and not inside the brain itself, however, I'm not certain exactly what this means. Although, he his not her doctor, he says she should be able to go home and be treated with anti-coagulants for some number of months.
The expert said these veins travel over the surface of the brain, and my impression is that the implication is that this is not as serious as if it were inside the brain.
Oh dear, on behalf of all of us here I extend our best wishes and hopes for a speedy recovery to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
We love you Hillary! Get well soon!
