Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital today after the discovery of a blood clot linked to her recent concussion.

Clinton reportedly suffered the concussion when was ill with the flu and fainted. That kept her from testifying on Capitol Hill about the Benghazi report as scheduled before Christmas.

The blood clot was discovered during a follow-up check today, according to the Associated Press. Clinton has been scheduled to return to work this week.

Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines said she is being treated with anti-coagulants and monitored at the hospital for the clot and “other issues associated with her concussion.”

She has been recuperating from the flu/fall for three weeks, and doctors banned her from air travel for an even longer period for fear that she could develop a clot.
