Hillary Clinton’s doctors released the following statement saying that she has a blood clot in her head, “in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.”
Here’s the full statement:
“In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, the scan revealed that a right transverse sinus venous thrombosis had formed. 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. To help dissolve this clot, her medical team began treating the Secretary with blood thinners. She will be released once the medication dose has been established. In all other aspects of her recovery, the Secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff.”
Weird. If something happens, I’ll become a full-blown conspiracy theorist. (And yes, there are lots of jokes that can be generated here, but let’s not).
