Hillary Clinton tells ABC's Diane Sawyer that she's probably on blood thinners for the rest of her life:

"We have to immediately put you on blood thinners," Clinton says the doctor told her during her health scare at the end of 2012. "So I went, was there for three days, and then got it --"

"So blood thinners now," says Sawyer. 

"Blood thinners. Yeah," Clinton says nodding. 

"For life?"

"Probably," responds Clinton. "But I don't mind because I don't ever want to go through that again."
