U.S. Secretary of State¬†Hillary Clinton¬†was discharged from a¬†New York hospital¬†on Wednesday after being treated for a blood clot near her brain and her doctors expect her to make a full recovery, the State Department said.
Clinton, who has not been seen in public since Dec. 7, was at¬†New York-Presbyterian Hospital¬†under treatment for a blood clot behind her right ear that stemmed from a concussion she suffered in mid-December, the department said on Sunday.
"Secretary¬†Clinton was discharged from the hospital this evening. Her medical team advised her that she is making good progress on all fronts, and they are confident she will make a full recovery,"¬†Philippe Reines, a deputy assistant secretary of state, said in a statement.
Reines said¬†Clinton was "eager to get back to the office."
Earlier,¬†State Department¬†spokeswoman¬†Victoria Nuland¬†told reporters at her daily briefing Clinton¬†had been talking with her staff by telephone and receiving memos.
Clinton also spoke to two foreign officials - the U.N. envoy on¬†Syria¬†and the prime minister of¬†Qatar¬†- on Saturday, the day before the¬†State Department¬†disclosed the blood clot and her stay at the hospital.
In a statement released by the¬†State Department¬†on Monday,¬†Clinton's doctors said she was being treated with blood thinners and would be released from the hospital once the correct dosage had been determined.
