American Scene: Clinton receiving blood thinners to dissolve clot
Her doctors say blood thinners are being used to dissolve the clot and they are confident she will make a full recovery. Mrs. Clinton didn’t suffer a stroke or neurological damage from the clot that formed after she suffered a concussion during a fainting spell at her home in early December, doctors said in a statement Monday.
Mrs. Clinton, 65, was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday when the clot turned up on a follow-up exam on the concussion, Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines said. The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. She will be released once the medication dose for the blood thinners has been established, the doctors said.
Mrs. Clinton’s complication “certainly isn’t the most common thing to happen after a concussion” and is one of the few types of blood clots in the skull or head that are treated with blood thinners, said Dr. Larry B. Goldstein, a neurologist who is director of Duke University’s stroke center. He is not involved in Mrs. Clinton’s care.
Hundreds ring in 2013 with icy sea plunge
NEW YORK — Hundreds of hardy swimmers rang in 2013 with a plunge into the icy sea off Brooklyn’s Coney Island, an area struggling to recover from Superstorm Sandy.
Some people hit the surf dressed only in bikinis or briefs. One woman dressed as a mermaid. Another swimmer wore a hat with horns. Temperatures outside were in the 30s, and people screamed at the shock of the cold water.
This year, Polar Bear club members and others were raising money for Sandy relief efforts. The area was badly flooded by the late October storm.
The Ice Breakers try to raise awareness of water pollution.
