    John Bolton, the UN ambassador under George W. Bush, claimed Hilary Clinton was faking it when she had a concussion. I wonder if he thinks this blood clot is fake too.

    One could argue that John Bolton is faking it being a human being.

    Hope she gets better. This really worried me, but she seems to be in good hands and caught early.

    Bolton was the first one I thought of when I heard about Hillary's blood clot (sounds like a stroke to me). He's a broken man. Ignoring him is easy enough.

    I hope Hillary's okay.

    Blood clots can be deadly serious. An older friend of mine - Hillary's age and approx. weight - fell at home & sprained her ankle. My friend was hospitalized with a suspected blood clot and she died overnight - - while still at the hospital. Hillary hasn't been looking too well lately in photos & t.v. appearances. I hope she can lose some weight and get her health back quickly.

    Not your usual leg DVT...this one's serious.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s doctors said Monday that the blood clot that led to her hospitalization is located between her brain and skull, behind her right ear, but they expect her to make a full recovery.

    The clot was discovered through an MRI Sunday and was diagnosed as a “right transverse sinus venous thrombosis.”

    “This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear,” said a statement from Dr. Lisa Bardack of Mt. Kisco Medical Group and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi of George Washington University. “It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.”
    ...
    “What she has is really, really uncommon,” he said, noting that it occurs in hundreds rather than thousands of people each year.

    The fact that she has suffered no stroke or neurological damage would indicate that it was either not big enough to block the vein entirely or was caught early enough — before a significant backup of blood formed that may have put pressure on the brain and affected its supply of oxygenated blood, Haut said.

    I'm sure she needs a full hypercoagulable work up. She shouldn't run for president without it.
