Hillary Clinton is back on the campaign trail after taking a few sick days to recover from pneumonia, and she delivered a pretty thoughtful update about her health. So, what did the presidential hopeful get up to during her time off? Aside from obsessively scrolling through Donald Trump's Twitter feed (one assumes), she pretty much hung out with her adorable dogs.

"It's great to be back on the campaign trail. As you may know, I recently had a cough that turned out to be pneumonia," Clinton told crowds in North Carolina. "I tried to power through it, but even I had to admit that maybe a few days of rest would do me good. I'm not great at taking it easy, even under ordinary circumstances, and sitting home was pretty much the last place I wanted to be with just two months until Election Day. But having a few days to myself was actually a gift. I talked with some old friends and spent time with our very sweet dogs."

Sounds like #goals, but the democratic candidate also noted that people in her position are lucky enough to be able to afford days off work. Not everyone has that luxury. "Millions of Americans can't," she said. "They either go to work sick, or they lose a paycheck. Lots of Americans still don't even have insurance—or they do, but it's too expensive to actually use."

We can all agree that the flu-ridden among us deserve a few days to relax at home and get better, right?
