Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton suffered a concussion after fainting this weekend, according to reports, but did not sustain serious injury.
Clinton, 65, was staying home due to a stomach virus. Her illness left her dehydrated, which led to a brief fainting spell. Clinton then hit her head.
Clinton continues to work from home while being monitored by doctors, but hopes to return to work "soon," explained a statement by aide Philippe Reines.
As a result, Clinton will no longer attend hearings Thursday about the September 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, that resulted in the deaths of four Americans.
Instead, senior State Department officials William Burns and Thomas Nides will fill in for her.
