Either this is a total lie, or she was whacked over the head in her home by someone not wanting her to testify on Benghazi.
You know some days it is just better to say not a thing. Then again with the people in power how do I know this is the truth?
Book review of Connie Mariano's memoir "The White House Doctor"

THE WHITE HOUSE DOCTOR
By Connie Mariano
Thomas Dunne/St. Martin's. 300 pp. $25.99
Connie Mariano has seen George H.W. Bush naked. It's very likely that she's seen Bill Clinton in the buff, too. Don't get the wrong idea, though; it was strictly professional. Mariano, a Filipino-American Navy doctor, spent nine years serving as White House Physician -- tending to the health of the U.S. commander in chief. Her memoir, "The White House Doctor," provides a peek into the tedium of treating the president's every cough, sniffle and golf-course-induced blister. And then some. "The Secret Service calls it the 'kill zone,' " she writes. "To be in the presence of the president is to stand in the kill zone and to sense the rarefied, exciting, and potentially deadly experience of being in close proximity to an assassin's most prized prey."
Luckily, Mariano's tenure -- which encompassed the final year of George H.W. Bush's term and the entirety of the Clinton administration -- was a relatively quiet one. Tense moments, when they arrived, were not explosive in a literal sense. Mariano performed the Heimlich maneuver on a guest at the Bush family's holiday party, treated Hillary Clinton for a blood clot and accidentally flooded the toilet aboard the king of Spain's yacht.
As far as juicy White House-insider commentary goes, Mariano's not much of a gossip. Non-presidential patients frequently remain anonymous, and if she's privy to details regarding Clinton's late-'90s philandering, they are not included here. Mariano is a self-made woman -- the first female White House physician, the first woman director of the White House Medical Unit and the first Filipina to become a Navy rear admiral -- and "The White House Doctor" is mainly about her accomplishments as a medical professional. In that spirit, Mariano keeps doctor-patient confidentiality intact.

why didn’t they check her from beginning? Sounds like poor medical care to me - but then I’m not an expert
No...it was a clot...His wife and his two daughters are all RN’s and very close to me.
Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines says her doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up exam Sunday. Reines says Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants.
Reports say Hillary was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital this afternoon after follow-up check-up on concussion showed she had a blood clot. She's being treated with anti-coagulants and will be under observation for next 48 hours.
Yeah, my doctor regularly works on Sunday. Especially when I need a doctor’s excuse not to testify in front of Congress.
The AP statement is confusing.
Update: Per Huffington Post, the clot was discovered after a follow up exam earlier today. She was admitted to NY-Presbyterian Hospital for 48-hour monitoring.
How would they have found it today? She’s down in the Dominican Republic with Bill?
Next it will be AMNESIA!
Haha, Republicans! Try to beat that one!
My doctor is always on call. Yup...he’ll even leave the golf course.
Wasn’t there a report from the National Enquirer recently claiming that Hillary has a brain tumor?
Transatalantic Subsaharan Huma-optomy?
See my post #11
Navy, White House...
hard to describe someone with lifetime government employment “self-made”
“or this is all a huge lie.”
Do you mean bigger than Benghazi or not quite as big ?
Shes down in the Dominican Republic with Bill?
And Barbara Walters...a world renowned journalist per herself...
