Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left New York Presbyterian Hospital this afternoon after a three-night stay to treat a potentially life-threatening blood clot.

Clinton, 65, left the Manhattan hospital in the back of a GMC Savanah van driven by her security details. Her husband Bill Clinton, the former president, visited her earlier in the day.

She was admitted last Sunday evening. Her doctors said a blood clot had formed behind her right ear in the space between her brain and skull.

The secretary of state, weakened by a stomach virus, fell in her Washington DC, home last month and sustained a concussion.

Doctors had been treating her with blood thinners and said she is expected to make a full recovery.

Her hospitalization didn’t much slow down her hectic work schedule, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said today.

“She’s been quite active on the phone with staff and taking paper, etc.,” Nuland, referring to the memos.

Clinton has not been seen publicly since Dec. 7
