“She's resting at home,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters. “Some of the senior staff who spoke to her about half an hour ago say that she's sounding terrific, upbeat, raring to go.”
The globe-trotting 65-year-old diplomat was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday after a routine scan revealed the clot in a vein behind her right ear in the space between her skull and her brain.
Clinton left hospital late Wednesday after three days of treatment and doctors say they expect her to make a full recovery.
“She's looking forward to getting back to the office,” Nuland said. “She is very much planning to do so next week. And we'll have further, precise details about that as she continues to make progress.”
