Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist.
The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur.
Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening.
But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital.
Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton's wrist, and determined that she had a hairline fracture, the Times of India reports.

Hillary Clinton's wrist injury was worse than thought. Doctors now say she fractured her wrist after slipping in a bathtub at an Indian palace where she was staying on Tuesday. Clinton is pictured above arriving in Jodhpur on Tuesday, just before the fall

They wrapped her wrist in a crepe bandage and advised her to rest further, and get a follow up in three days with doctors wherever she was staying.
Her doctors back in the U.S. agreed.
Clinton then cancelled the rest of her plans for the day, which included traveling to a village outside the city to see workers weave carpets.
It meant that Clinton didn't get to do any of her planned itinerary in Jodhpur, as she was scheduled to leave for the next stop of her trip, Jaipur, on a chartered plane Thursday morning, according to DNA India.
This is the second time that Clinton has fallen on her tour of India.
This isn't the first time Clinton has fallen on her tour. While visiting the ancient city of Mandu on Monday, she fell down some stairs

While visiting the ancient city of Mandu in Madhya Pradesh, the former first lady and failed presidential candidate was filmed falling down the stairs Jahaz Mahal, of a 13th century harem.
It's unclear whether that fall contributed to Clinton's injury, as she did use her right hand to catch herself on the stairs.
The injury comes just five months after she broke her toe in a fall in London.
During the presidential campaign, cameras caught Clinton leaving the 9/11 memorial in Manhattan and collapsing into the arms of Secret Service agents as she got into a waiting van.
She later announced she'd been diagnosed with dehydration and pneumonia.
Perhaps most infamously, Clinton fell inside her home in 2013 on the eve of testimony before a Senate committee investigating Benghazi.
She got a mild concussion and was treated for a blood clot near her brain.
When she appeared in Congress to testify, she was wearing special prism eyeglass lenses, which are used to assist people experiencing double vision.

Clinton has since returned to her normal contact lens eye-wear, though conspiracy theorists still delight in analyzing her sunglasses for signs of prism lenses.
Clinton has brushed off most of the incidents as routine mishaps or simple clumsiness.
In October 2017, she was in London promoting her book when she arrived on the set of the Graham Norton Show wearing a surgical boot.Read More...
