WASHINGTON (AP) _ Sarah Palin's doctor in Alaska says she's in excellent health with no known health issues that would interfere with her ability to function as vice president if she and Republican John McCain are elected Tuesday.
McCain's campaign released a summary of Palin's medical history Monday night.
Palin's personal family physician, Dr. Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, says Palin has only been hospitalized for childbirth. Palin is 44 and has five children. She gave birth to her fifth child, son Trig, earlier this year.
Palin had a breast biopsy in 1992 for what turned out to be a benign lesion. Her vital signs, including blood pressure and pulse, have been normal.
The doctor also said Palin takes no routine prescription medications and exercises regularly.
OK, so here's my question: Was Baldwin-Johnson's statement that "she has only been hospitalized for childbirth" or was it "she gave birth to her fifth child..." etc.
This from CNN:
(CNN) — Just hours before Election Day, the McCain campaign released a summary of Gov. Sarah Palin’s health — a physician’s letter saying the vice presidential candidate is in “excellent health.”
Palin was the last contender on the presidential tickets to release her medical history in some form.
The November 3 letter from her physician, Dr. Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, says, “Governor Palin is in excellent health and has no known health problems that would interfere with her ability to carry out the duties and obligation of Vice President of the United States of America.”
