Hillary Clinton was recently diagnosed with pneumonia, a relatively common illness both women and men get all the time. But because #sexism (many male presidents have had medical problems without issue), there's been a certain amount of panic and criticism surrounding Hillary's ability to run the country, so her doctor went ahead and published an update.

"Mrs. Clinton has been seen by me this year for routine care," Clinton's physician Dr. Bardack writes. "She has had recurrent blood testing for Coumadin dosing and adjustments. Her blood levels have been relatively stable. She has also had several allergy flares over the past year, which has been a typical pattern for most of her life. In consultation with her allergist, she responded well to her medication adjustments."

Yay, no more allergies! But let's talk about the subject on everyone's mind: Clinton's pneumonia, which Dr. Bardack describes as "mild" and "non-contagious."

"I examined her immediately upon her return home; she was re-hydrating and recovering nicely. I advised her to stay home and rest for the next several days," he writes. "She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest. She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States."
