WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is
expected to return to work next week, almost three weeks after being
sidelined by a concussion.
Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines says
Clinton continues to recuperate at home and will resume her office
schedule next week. He says Clinton had no schedule this week because of
a long-planned holiday.
Aides and doctors say Clinton contracted a
stomach virus in early December and became dehydrated, then fainted,
fell and hit her head. She was diagnosed with a concussion on Dec. 13
and hasn't been seen in public since.
Clinton's illness led her to
cancel an overseas trip and scheduled testimony before Congress about
the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
