WASHINGTON (AP) - Doctors treating Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for a blood clot in her head say blood thinners are being used to dissolve the clot and say they are confident she will make a full recovery.
Clinton's doctors say the former first lady didn't suffer a stroke or neurological damage from the clot that formed after she suffered a concussion during a fainting spell at her home in early December.
A spokesman says Clinton was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday when the clot turned up on a follow-up exam on the concussion.
The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. Her doctors say Clinton will be released once the proper dose for blood thinners is determined.
