American tennis star and noted Williams sister Serena Williams was spotted several times in a California hospital, and her people have confirmed that something really really bad happened.
“Monday Serena Williams underwent emergency treatment at Cedars for a hematoma she suffered as a result of treatment for a more critical situation,” the rep says in an exclusive statement.
“Last week, Serena suffered from a pulmonary embolism [a blood clot in the lungs] which was discovered upon her return to L.A. She had been in New York for doctor appointments for the ongoing issues with her foot.”

I added the link there because I doubt this crowd has any clue what a pulmonary embolism is. And if you do, just keep it to yourself. Don’t soil our efforts at dumbness just so you can show everyone you went to med school.
