Hillary Clinton has more tests, 'is much better'

NEW YORK (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton says his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, has undergone more medical tests but is "doing much better."

He made the remarks Monday to New York Congressman Peter King. The two men spoke in front of reporters outside the funeral of former New York City Mayor Ed Koch.

Clinton said his wife had five hours of tests on Sunday and was told to "take it easy for another month."

He said if her progress continues, "she'll be completely recovered."

Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines said Sunday's tests comprised a long-scheduled, routine follow-up. He said Hillary Clinton is in good condition but wouldn't provide further details.

She suffered a concussion in December, then doctors found a blood clot.

The former secretary of state has a new website called http://hillaryclintonoffice.com/that allows the public to contact her office with scheduling requests, media inquiries or other requests.

Her old campaign web site, http://www.hillaryclinton.com/, directs viewers to the new office website.
