Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to recover in a New York Hospital.
Doctors are keeping a close eye on Clinton while using blood thinners to break up a clot, located in a vein behind her right ear between her brain and skull.
The 65-year-old has remained hospitalized since she was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday.
Doctors say Clinton is making excellent progress and predict a full recovery from the blood clot.
According to Clinton’s spokesman Phillipe Reines, the clot formed while Clinton was battling a stomach virus and suffered a concussion during a fainting spell at her home in Dec.
In a briefing addressed to the press on Clinton’s condition on Wednesday, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland sought to strike an upbeat tone. Nuland issued a reassuring message that nothing has changed in the Secretary’s condition but that she’s remained “quite active on the phone” from her hospital bed.
