What's up with Hillary?

So first we heard Hillary had hit her head and had a concussion. Then we heard she had the flu which caused her to get dehydrated, pass out, and hit her head. Then we heard she had a blood clot in her leg. Then we heard she had a blood clot in her head. Then we heard she had a subdural hematoma. Then we heard she was on blood thinner.

Ya know, none of this really makes sense to me. If Hillary really has a subdural hematoma, as far as I know, you DO NOT USE BLOOD THINNER to treat them. That would only increase bleeding and make the subdural hematoma larger. Many subdurals are simply watched and treated conservatively and over time will resolve on their own. If they grow and start to increase pressure in the brain or impinge on important structures, they are sometimes drained with a tube or surgery is performed to remove them and repair the damaged vessels that caused the bleeding.

The only time I know of using blood thinner to treat a clot in the brain is if the clot is inside an artery going to the brain. This is otherwise known as a STROKE! The part of the brain beyond the involved artery is damaged due to lack of blood supply.

But then I saw another report that said she did not have a stroke. So who knows what the heck is going on with Hillary? If this were an important Republican official, you can bet your sweet ass that the press would be all over this like white on rice demanding full transparency and full accountability. Seems like the media coverage of all this has been lukewarm at best.

From a purely humanitarian point of view I don't wish the woman any ill and hope she makes a full recovery from whatever kind of hocus pocus injury or illness she has. But I fear we are seeing nothing but hocus pocus here and the root of the problem may be an acute Benghazioma.
