The 29-year old tennis star, Serena Williams has sought treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for a hematoma (blood clot due to hemorrhage) in one of her lungs. This came a week after Ms. Williams was diagnosed with a blood clot in her lungs during the treatment for a foot injury.
Williams tells People.com, "Thank you everyone for all of your prayers, concerns, and support. This has been extremely hard, scary, and disappointing. I am doing better. I'm at home now and working with my doctors to keep everything under control. I know I will be okay, but am praying and hoping this will all be behind me soon. While I can't make any promises now on my return (to tennis), I hope to be back by early summer. That said, my main goal is to make sure I get there safely."
