WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has returned to work after a month-long absence caused first by a stomach virus, then a fall and a concussion and finally a brief hospitalization for a blot clot near her brain.
Clinton presided over a senior staff meeting today, the first she has convened since early December before contracting the stomach bug after returning from a trip to Europe on Dec. 7. Her illness eventually forced a stay at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where doctors treated the clot with blood thinners. She was released from the hospital last Wednesday.
Clinton is expected to resign from the State Department soon. President Barack Obama has nominated Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry to replace her.
