Three days after being hospitalized for a blood clot, the Secretary of State has been released from the hospital.

Hillary Clinton, 65, was hospitalized on Dec. 30 after an MRI revealed a blood clot in a vein behind her right ear that helps carry blood to the brain. On Jan. 2, the Secretary of State left the hospital accompanied by husband former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton.

The family emerged from New York-Presbytarian Hospital all smiles, hopefully an indicator that Hillary is feeling better.

The blood clot is a result of a concussion Hillary suffered after a fall on Dec. 9. Thankfully, the clot was not life-threatening.

Hillary Clinton’s Health & Recovery Outlook

“In all other aspects of her recovery, the Secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff,” Dr. Lisa Bardack and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi explained in a statement.

Despite the fact that Hillary has been hospitalized for the past few days, the Secretary of State has still been working and in constant contact with the staff in Washington D.C, Hillary’s spokesperson revealed.

State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland told the Associated Press, “She’s been quite active on the phone with all of us.”

Daughter Chelsea, who looked extremely relieved by her mother’s release, took to Twitter on Dec. 31 to thank everyone for their well wishes for her mother:

“Thank you to all for sending good thoughts my Mom’s way. Grateful to all her doctors & that she’ll make a full recovery!”
