Hillary Clinton is in the hospital? Is it a stroke? Her conditions align to that diagnosis, but that information hasn’t been released yet. Here’s what we know – a couple of weeks ago she passed out and got a concussion – they said that was the result of a stomach flu the Secretary of State and former First Lady was suffering.
Then today, at a follow up appointment for the concussion, State Department aide Phllippe Reines says, “In the course of a follow-up exam today, Secretary Clinton’s doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago. 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.”
That’s pretty much the same protocol that would be administered if she had suffered a stroke and a mini-stroke would also explain the tumble she took two weeks ago. Reines added, “Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion. They will determine if any further action is required.” What are the “other issues” he’s speaking of? This is where suspicion of a stroke comes in. It seems like minimal information is being given.
At age 65, with weight problems and a stressful lifestyle and job, Hillary is a prime candidate for a stroke. The State Department says she’ll be back at work tomorrow, but I can’t imagine that’s the case. 48 hours of hospitalized observation and treatment would have her under doctor’s care through at least Tuesday.
Hillary’s not been looking to good lately. It could be the job stress, it could be the stomach flu and concussion or it could be a mini-stroke. And then there’s the small minority of critics that think she’s faking the whole thing to avoid testifying on the Benghazi attack. We wish her well and hope she recovers soon. She’s expected in Congress on 10 January to testify. We’ll see which theory plays out by then, I’m sure.
