Doctors treating U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a hospital in New York say they expect her to make a full recovery.

Clinton was admitted to the hospital on December 30 with a blood clot that was the result of a fall Clinton had at the start of December when she was sick with a stomach ailment.

Doctors said in a statement on December 31 that the blood clot is in a vein between her brain and skull behind the right ear.

"It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage," the doctor's statement said.

The doctors said the secretary of state is "making excellent progress."

The statement said Clinton is in "good spirits" and will be released from the hospital once the dose of blood thinners to dissolve the clot is determined.
