Posted By: Associated Press · 12/31/2012 5:19:00 PM

Doctors treating Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for a blood clot say the clot formed in her head, but they stress that they are confident she will make a full recovery.

In an update Monday on Clinton's condition, her doctors say the blood clot did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.

The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.

Clinton's doctors say that to help dissolve the clot, they are treating her with blood thinners.

They say she will be released once the medication dose has been established.

In their update, the doctors say the 65-year-old secretary of state is making excellent progress and is in good spirits.
