Secretary Clinton in hospital with
blood clot stemming from concussion

Fox News & Associated Press, by Pat Summers

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/30/2012 8:35:12 PM

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to a hospital in New York with blood clot stemming from a concussion she sustained several weeks ago. Assistant Deputy Secretary of State Philippe Reines said in a statement that during a follow-up exam, Clinton´s doctors discovered a blood clot had formed. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours. Doctors will continue to monitor Clinton´s condition to determine if further action is necessary.

Comments:
This IS a game changer. But, what of Benghazi and "fiscal cliff," now? Interesting to see how soon till 0bama makes this about himself.

The woman is so powerful she can be in Punta Cana and NYC at the same time.

This is just so much nonsense. IMHO.

Her blood clot is caused by fifty-something years of lying!

I don´t believe she went to a hospital or a doctor when she hit her head.
So HOW does a doctor "discover" a blood clot? She must have had presented with symptoms.

Medically confusing story:

"Blood clot" from concussions usually refers to head trauma and bleeding in the brain that is NOT treated with anticoagulants.

Blood clots from immobility relate to clots inside veins, often in the legs. These are treated with anticoagulants, but are, by themselves, not too serious - unless they float from the vein into the lungs as a pulmonary embolism.

MRI video or it didn´t happen.

What with her lying under oath for Whitewater and so on, there´s no reason to give Hellbeast the benefit of the doubt. She´ll do anything necessary to avoid testifying on Benghazi. First she went antipodal, then she needed a nap, then the cold or flu, then dehydration, then concussion.

If her maladies prove genuine and she dies, I´ll be momentarily remorseful for ever doubting her about this one very narrow and most recent set of circumstances.

The advertising in the left sidebar is appropo. I would say to all the doubters here, remember Liam Neeson´s late wife? She smacked her head in a skiing incident, felt fine and shrugged it off. Several hours later she is in a coma, then dead. I have to believe that she is honestly sick right now. It may not be convenient, but sometimes that is the way life goes.

I agree with #8, this is in my field of work.

A brain concussion by its very definition is a bleed, albeit they can be pinpoint to huge.

Blood in the brain is an irritant, it causes necrosis if brain matter, causing it to die. Blood is usually removed before it causes brain tissue death depending on size and location. You can have epidural bleeds, as well.

Substantial clots are evacuated via brain surgery. Smaller ones are left alone.

They do treat people with extremity clots with anti coags, but they infer this is in her brain.

By this very fact, anticoags to treat a brain clot are horribly dangerous, as it places the patient that already had a bleed at extreme risk to re-bleed. This just isn´t done. In fact, if the patients´ clotting factor is too low, as it would be from anti coags, they reverse them emergently with transfusions. This happens with patients often, taking coumadin that bump their heads.

Even if her clot is in an extremity, it is high risk as she has has an alleged recent brain bleed, no matter how small.

This is when risk vs benefits must be weighed. If true, her concussion, therefore,can be perceived to have been pinpoint, her risk factor being ver, very low.

This is of course, just my opinion.

#20, isn´t a concussion essentially a blod clot around the brain? How could that migrate to a leg?
Is it possible that the concussion story was that, a story? And she actually developed DVT? (Richard Nixon, in 1974, was flying around the world, developed that, from sitting, and they put in some sort of shunt in his groin. And one of the TV reporters, whose name escapes me, died in 2003 in Iraq, same deal, and it was attributed to his flying time?)

Hillary, eluding the congressional investigators, flew to Peru for a women´s conference, then back to d.c. to then fly to australia for wine tasting. That´s a whole lot of sitting. (I advised my daughter, a ballerina, to walk around on her flight to Australia from LA, for the blood clot prevention. And she was a mere 18 years old at the time, and in the physical condition you would expect a ballerina to be in. Hillary is elderly.)

Thanks for the outline #28.

One presumes the "clot" refers to stroke symptoms, and diagnosis two weeks after the event doesn´t sound like first-class care at all, or even second-class. I might speculate she simply refused all treatment at the time in spite of symptoms either at the event or in the days that followed.

Perhaps we´ll someday get some facts. Then again, this being the Clintons, perhaps never.

Correct, a clot in the brain cannot migrate. If it was in an artery, then it would be what most people know as a stroke. Usually, these are so small by the time they cause a stroke, breaking and migrating can cause further strokes in smaller vessels, but these are headed off with anti coags immediately, not later. There is no confusing a clot with an ischemic stroke, though some ischemic strokes can progress to bleeds. Again, brain surgery with evacuation of hematoma, and stopping the bleed is an emergency. Not a sit at home a week or two and see what happens.

Something isn´t right about the story, but I suspect poor reporting by clueless media. I would be more willing to believe a DVT, as you stated, as opposed to a brain clot, which is a hematoma or a stroke. You just don´t treat a hematoma this way.

The report on FoxNews said doctors at New York-Presbyterian discovered the blood clot at a "follow-up visit" today, so apparently she had been treated there previously or by their doctors after her concussion. There goes the conspiracy theory that she had never seen a doctor about the fall and concussion. People do faint and fall when they become severely dehydrated (like from a stomach ailment) and do not get IV fluids. Call me crazy, but I will trust that the docs at NY-Presby know what they are doing and how to treat a blood clot, in the brain or wherever it is located, better than posters who know zero about her medical history and present condition.

As other posters have noted, the story we are being given makes no sense whatever. Where is the offending thrombus? If it is close to the brain as the implication that it is connected to an (alleged)concussion suggests, anticoagulant therapy can only be a fiendish Republican plot to eliminate that most annoying and persistent of political pests, Hillary Rodham Clinton. It is more likely, of course, that she is being treated for a deep vein thrombosis in the calf. But how is this supposed to be connected to the (alleged) concussion? Knocks on the head do not usually result in blood clots in the leg. With the Clintons, of course, anything and everything is possible. About the only thing one can be sure of is that whatever story they are peddling, it is unlikely to be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. This couple has taken mendacity to previously undreamt of heights - and their fans, followers and groupies just love them all the more for their chutzpah and ability to keep a straight face while they serve up their latest and greatest whoppers.

Democrats as a group seem to be increasingly truth-challenged in their public statements. Much of the credit for this belongs to Bill and Hillary, two of the boldest and shameless bald faced liars in the history of American politics. They have shown the way, and indicated to others what is possible, i.e. what many Americans are prepared to believe.

Who knows what the story is now? How wearisome it is, how productive of headaches it becomes, to have to try to separate fact from fiction in the doings and (mis)deeds of the Mr. and Mrs. of the fibbers and scoundrels.

Is the clot the result of her concussion? (Petty long fact the fact to be looking for it now) OR....was the fall the result of brain bleed? Possibly she had another fall that resulted in this trip to the hospital?

Unfortunatley we´ve had experience with the mistaken notion that a twisted ankle caused a fall only to discover the stroke came first. The first things they did was stop the coumadin and administer vitamin K...so the anti-coagulant part of the story makes no sense.

Next we will see her wearing pastel pink just like the ´pretty in pink´ interview in the oversized chair under the Lincoln protrait ´I don´t know how I made 100G in cattle futures.´

I agree with others here the story doesn´t fully make sense. Unless her handlers in the mainstream media are still trying to continue the phony concussion story. A concussion to the head has nothing to do with a blood clot in the calf or leg. Whatever the story is Hillary gets to sit in a warm, comfy hospital while ambassador Stevens was tortured and dragged to his death in Benghazi while no one in Hillary´s State Dept. including Hillary lifted a finger to help.

My thoughts exactly, #8. It sounds like she may have a blood clot in her leg, totally different illness from the so called concussion. Her staff is now trying to tie it to the pretend concussion and will use it to further prevent her from testifying. Fortunately, there are enough people out there that know this is full of holes and there will be *revisions* to this story shortly, and more revisions...

First, a concussion and coma happening to the Secretary of State / Senator / former First Lady / in the running for Democratic Candidate to be President of the United States - announcement postponed for two weeks, family not with her. Total lies and fabrication.

Second, the blood clot. How was I so stupid not to consider this circumstance. It´s a good one, and they have had plenty of time to confer and conspire so that Hillary does not testify on Benghazi. No apologies in advance here. If the blood clot bursts and she dies of a stroke, then it´s buh bye Hillary. You or I most likely could not arrange this, but don´t forget the FBI files. This evil woman has ´´access´´ to enough people to get this result from a NY physician. So once again, total lies and fabrication.

Whatever did or didn´t happen doesn´t matter. Hillary won´t testify. CNN had the explanation a while ago. Prepping for testimony is very taxing. All the reading is bad enough, but then there are the ´monster boards´ which simulate the questions from the screaming opposition. This would be too much for Hillary in her distressed condition. On top of that all the travel she´s done in service to her country has left her weakened.

Any testimony from Hillary will be written.

I´m torn. The immediate reaction would be: oh poor dear - I certainly hope there´s nothing serious and that her docs can get to the bottom of this. Except, this is a Clinton we´re talking about. Mendacious. Lies. Deceptions. Dishonesty. Deceit. Falsehoods.
Neither of them would know truth if it slapped them upside the head.

Otherwise - bless her heart...

I saw this in the original Star Trek - "The Menagerie". She´ll testify in a wheelchair with nothing but a blinking light, once for yes, twice for no, like Captain Pike.

Hill could have easily caught a bad flu bug and been so sick she stood up too quick, fainted and hit her head. And from the excessive amount of time she´s spent flying the past 4 years, a blood clot is probably overdue. But if Hill isn´t real careful, she might get something that permanently prevents her testifying about Benghazi because the people she´s in cahoots with play for keeps - just ask Vince Foster.

If someone told you that the woman who first came up with healthcare rationing would someday, fall, hit her head and not get immediate medical attention, wouldn´t you think that could never happen?

I am sorry if true; however, I keep thinking about the actor, Bill Holden, who was so drunk he fell and hit his head on a night stand. Hillary is supposedly a big drinker and smoker.

I didn´t believe it either, but assuming it´s real for a second, it is possible that her "fall" and subsequent concussion was caused by a TIA and blood clot or blockage of some kind - not the other way around.

That´s quite common as people get older - though she´s a little young for it in those terms.

If she has a clot, I don´t think it has anything to do with her concussion. The reporter said it did, but how much is just their speculation?? She may very well have a DVT. I had one and they kept me on warfarin for 6 months. It may be just a coincidence they found this on the follow up for the concussion. Anyway, it may be a ruse, but I´ll give her the benefit of the doubt for now. Nixon had pblebitus (sp?) ...I remember that. A lot of flying and being sedentary can cause clots. Women and smokers are also more prone to them. Anyway, we will find out the truth about Benghazi eventually. I think we already know enough to impeach the President, but more will be revealed.

Used up fools can be such problems to get rid of quietly. The Junta will not want Hillary running in 2016. She can´t be trusted.

A pulmonary embolus can present with light-headedness. If she´s on heparin or another anti-coagulant, she probably had a DVT from all that jetting around, and it went to her lungs. But then just going home for a week? No. This doesn´t wash.

How very sad it is that a former First Lady, and current Secretary of State, has been untruthful about so many things that she cannot now be trusted to be truthful about anything - anything at all. Does it really matter if she testifies? Lying under oath has never been unacceptable to her.

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

Milford, CT - Two British men who pleaded guilty to raising money for al Qaeda and the Taliban were denied their bid on Friday to gain access to secret documents about a witness whose testimony could have a major impact on how long they spend in prison. The pair, 39-year-old Babar Ahmad and 34-year-old Syed Talha Ahsan, have argued in papers filed in U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut, that they have a right to more information on the witness, British citizen Saajid Badat. According to U.S. prosecutors, Badat was recruited into al Qaeda as a result of Ahmad's work and went on to play a role in the attempt by "shoe

Quito, Ecuador - Ecuador´s Tungurahua volcano has spewed a 6-mile (10-kilometer) column of ash after a powerful, five-minute explosion that shot pyroclastic material onto its northern and northwestern flanks. Ecuador´s geophysics institute said Friday´s blast occurred at 6:10 p.m. local time and was followed by a second, four-minute explosion and five lesser tremors. The 16,480-foot (5,023-meter) volcano, nearly 90 miles (140 kilometers) south of Quito, revived on Feb. 1, with eruptions that affected a third of Ecuador´s provinces and temporarily closed a regional airport. Tungurahua has been erupting sporadically since 1999.

If you drive one of the 2.6 million General Motors cars recalled because of a faulty ignition switch, you’re probably eager for the part to be replaced. (Snip) While G.M. has said they are safe as long as extra items are removed from the key ring, some consumer advocates and lawmakers have urged G.M. to warn owners not to drive the cars until they are fixed, saying that they still pose a danger. On Friday, a federal judge in Texas refrained from ruling on an emergency motion seeking to require the automaker to do that, saying she needed more time. G.M. had announced the recall of 1.62 million small cars from model years 2007 and earlier,

The chief spokesman for Gov.

The appearance of the spokesman, Michael Drewniak, a loyal lieutenant who previously served as Mr. Christie’s spokesman when he was the United States attorney for New Jersey, was confirmed by an official with knowledge of the proceedings. While it has been previously reported that a grand jury was meeting in the case, it was the first confirmation that a grand jury was interviewing witnesses, and not only reviewing subpoenaed

Sarah Palin to David Letterman:

Sarah Palin is not only celebrating David Letterman’s just-announced retirement, she says she hopes it might start a trend. “It’s cool, you know, out with the old, in with the new,” the former Alaska governor said on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Thursday night, after Letterman announced he would retire in 2015 that afternoon. The conservative darling famously clashed with Letterman in 2009 after he told a joke about her daughter that she said crossed a line. He later apologized. Speaking from Florida where Palin was fundraising for upstart Republican congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto, Palin said she hoped Letterman’s decision

Iran’s construction of a

Last month, the New York Times reported that satellite images appeared to show that Iran was undertaking a strange task: Creating a nonfunctional, full-size replica of an American Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier at the Gachin shipyard near Bandar Abbas on the Persian Gulf. Why, exactly, would Iran do this? Analysts told the Times that the boat might be blown up, either as target practice or for propaganda purposes. Iranian media rebutted these theories, instead reporting that the boat was part of a set being built for a movie based on the 1988 downing of an Iran Air passenger jet by the USS Vincennes.

‘Escalating argument’ direct

Officials now believe that an argument was a “direct, precipitating factor” leading to Wednesday’s shooting at Fort Hood, Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, the post’s commander, said during a news conference Friday afternoon. Army Spec. Ivan A. Lopez opened fire on Wednesday, killing three people and injuring 16, leading to a frenzied, chaotic scene on and around the sprawling installation. “His underlying medical conditions are not a direct precipitating factor,” Milley said Friday. “We believe that the immediate precipitating factor was more likely an escalating argument in his unit area.”

Hamid Karzai, in traditional green cap and cape, glances off to the side, almost as if checking over his shoulder for the Taliban — or perhaps for the United States. The Dalai Lama looks serene, Stephen Harper jovial, Jiang Zemin grim. The world’s most distinctive gallery of international leaders opens in Dallas on Saturday, famous faces as seen through the eyes of the former president of the United States and noted amateur painter, George W.

Iran’s Reformers Include More

As my colleagues Somini Sengupta and Thomas Erdbrink reported, there has been discomfort and anger in Washington since Iran applied for a visa to let a veteran diplomat who played a part in the 1979 hostage crisis move to New York and serve as its ambassador to the United Nations. What the outraged reaction from Washington obscures, however, is that several of the former hostage-takers — including the man who devised the plan to seize the United States Embassy in Tehran and the woman who explained the group’s demands to foreign reporters — later became leading members of the movement for reform in Iran.

Do progressive politics just make for good business? It seems they might, judging from the latest HoneyMaid ad, called “Love,” released after people left hateful comments about the same-sex couple featured in their ad, “This is Wholesome.” HoneyMaid avoided the snark route, and went straight for sentimentality instead. They printed out all of the negative comments and used them to make a collage that spells out the word “love.” The HoneyMaid commercial is just the latest in a general trend toward inclusivity in advertising. Remember all the flack Cheerios caught for its biracial couple and their sweet daughter in “Just Checking?”

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

"My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.
