  4. This. Yet again. In other news, water is wet.
  5. Where did I claim to be a medical professional? Also, I have had pneumonia before and spent 3 days in the hospital. That and basic stuff I have read and heard is the limit of my knowledge...which is similar to what others in this thread know about pneumonia.
  6. I know as much (no more, no less) as everyone else in this thread. Which is not much other than assumptions and speculation.
  7. It depends how bad it is and how far along or how long she had it. I do know when you are lightheaded and dehydrated and get an IV to hydrate you, you feel better pretty quick but there is no way she should have been doing anything except resting. Of course, imagine if she actually did that like she was supposed to. The story/narrative would be that she is halfway to her deathbed because of not showing up for a 9-11 event so frankly I would have done exactly what she did. She loses much more by not showing up at all versus what happened. As far as believing it, none of us know the full truth. Whether that's what she really has, whether there is something else with it, the severity, etc are all seemingly dependent on people's political leanings, especially in this thread. Her known symptoms (bad lingering cough, dehydration, lightheaded/fainting) are all symptoms of pnemonia. That's all I know.
  8. I also had it before.
  9. The above is especially true with the first debate being 2 weeks from today. Hey Jon, this might be the first time I ever gave you a good posting emoticon in a political thread.
  10. That is true. It is also about 0.2% of deaths (221 per 100,000 people). But those raw numbers by themselves don't really say much. How is the persons general health? How bad is the pneumonia? The latter is especially important. I mentioned earlier that I had a really bad case about 15 years ago and was in the hospital for 3 days. Hers is probably not nearly that bad but she is almost 70 so it is more serious in general because of her age. I was 40 when I had it. She also has the benefit of having doctors with her 24/7 and the best drugs money can buy (have at it "pay to play" people. ) Like I said earlier, some supporters are going to paint the picture that it is not a big deal (little cough, feels a little run down), while some opponents will look for the worst it could possibly be (death bed, drop out of the election). Like most things it is probably somewhere in the middle. Until proven otherwise I will assume it is a typical case of pneumonia. No question pneumonia is a serious illness for someone her age but unless she is in the 0.2% death rate for people over 65 she will probably be ok in a couple of weeks, which coincidentally is the first debate.
  11. Almost died? Come on now.
  12. How about average people in the middle of the extremes (bad cold vs knocking on deaths door) that know pneumonia is a serious illness but not a permanent or terminal illness?
