I Wish Her Well

Hillary Clinton made the same mistake I did – not getting the pneumonia shot as soon as she turned 65 and started receiving Medicare. The shot is good for 5 years, is available at most major pharmacies, and is paid for 100%.

The three times I have been hospitalized were for pneumonia, and this time I was hospitalized as a precaution because of other symptoms only tangentially related to the pneumonia. They initially thought I might have ebola.

She was dehydrated due to the fever, and the weakness was the result of the dehydration. A course of prednisone & antibiotics with Gatorade available and she should be fine. If you go out and meet the public and you are going to catch something.

For those who think this indicates something more, the first two times I had pneumonia were in 1965 & 1967. Prior to this hospitalization, I hadn’t seen a doctor for 30 years.
