Hillary Clinton's Brain Is Still Doing Fine and Doctors Expect a Full Recovery

In case you're not up to speed, our #1 gal Hillz has been hospitalized with a blood clot since Sunday, which she acquired after fainting from a bad stomach virus. Today, doctors revealed the location of the clot: her brain.

Secretary Clinton spent her second night at the hospital Monday, where she is being treated for a blood clot that formed in her head following a concussion she suffered weeks ago. Doctors discovered the clot on Sunday in an MRI.

"This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear," her doctors, Dr. Lisa Bardack and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi, said in a statement. "It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage."

Clinton's doctors said they need to monitor how she responds to her medications, which include blood thinners, before she is released.

Here's some more in-depth background on her condition and probable treatment. Doctors, at this point, are extremely optimistic and expect Hillary to make a full recovery. Kindly send all surplus New Year's wishes her way, JIC.
