Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on the road to recovery, far enough along in the treatment for a blood clot to be sent home from the hospital.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Lacerra reports from New York City:
Secretary Clinton was released from a New York City hospital, where she had been treated for a blood clot near her brain. Clinton’s spokesman saying her doctors advised her she has been making progress on all fronts and are confident she’ll make a full recovery.
Clinton had been in the hospital since Sunday. She was being treated with blood thinners to dissolve the clot, which was discovered during a follow-up exam after she suffered a concussion from a fall last month.
