Kara Swisher, who writes about technology for The Wall Street Journal’s All Things D site, is in a hospital after suffering a small stroke.

Swisher writes, “First off: I’m doing great, have recovered all functions completely and have even had a couple of scoops while bedridden. (And, yes, I am a bad patient!)

“In all seriousness, as it happened, a 14-hour plane flight sandwiched into a window seat with two big dudes sitting next to me, combined with a not-uncommon but undetected-until-now heart condition, seems to have spelled trouble for me this week and sent me right into a hospital here in China.

“(Note to everyone: When they tell you to walk around on long-haul air trips and drink plenty of water, you might want to listen.)

“Without going into the gory details, what I thought was jet lag and a bad migraine actually rendered me speechless for a few hours on Tuesday morning and in need of some serious medical attention and recuperation, which is why I will not be appearing at our first international D conference tonight.”
