Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was admitted to a New York hospital Sunday after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month.Blood clots can turn into a pulmonary embolism. This strikes home with me, because a pulmonary embolism is what ultimately killed my father in 1990. We've come a long way since then on the medical front and Mrs. Clinton will surely get the best possible medical care, but these things still can be fatal. I would suggest a prayer on her behalf would be a good thing now.
Clinton's doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication.
"Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion," Reines said in a statement. "They will determine if any further action is required."
