U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was discharged from a New York hospital on Wednesday – where she had been receiving treatment for a blood clot.

The former First Lady – who had not been seen in public since December 7 – was seen leaving a hospital building earlier – with her husband, former President Bill Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea.

On Sunday, the State Department had announced that Clinton was at a New York-Presbyterian hospital for a blood clot in a vein behind her left ear.

The blood clot stemmed from a concussion which itself was a result of stomach virus. She is expected to make a full recovery.
