Hillary Clinton is in some bad situation for 4th of July.
According to CNN:
The blood clot that sent Hillary Clinton to the hospital on Sunday is located between her brain and her skull behind her right ear, it was revealed this afternoon.
The Secretary of State’s doctors say they found the clot in a large vein in her head – though it is in a blood vessel that runs across the surface of her brain and is not in the brain itself.
Doctors said Clinton has suffered no brain damage or stroke and that she is expected to make a full recovery.
‘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,’ Drs Lisa Bardack and Gigi El-Bayoumi said in a statement.
A clot occurs when a blockage builds up, either from partial thrombus (coagulated blood) or an outside compression. When the vein becomes blocked, the coagulated blood may extend to veins draining the area, which could lead to a lack of oxygen and tissue death.
For Clinton, ‘the particular vein they’re talking about, there are enough other areas for the blood to travel through so it doesn’t build up in the brain,’ Dr Sanjay Gupta told CNN.
