Clinton Undergoes Surgery on Her Elbow
By Mary Beth Sheridan
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton underwent surgery this morning on her right elbow, which she fractured in a fall in the State Department basement two days ago, officials said.
The operation at George Washington University Hospital began at 7:30 a.m. and lasted two hours, according to Cheryl D. Mills, chief of staff to Clinton. Doctors expect a full recovery.
Clinton canceled her public events on Thursday and Friday. She is recovering at her home in Washington, where daughter Chelsea and ex-President Bill Clinton have joined her, according to Mills' statement.
Clinton is scheduled to travel to Italy and Greece beginning June 24. It is not yet clear whether she will have to change her plans.
