On the same day that Donald Trump discussed a recent physical on “The Dr. Oz Show,” Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a letter from her doctor giving greater details of her health and describing her as “fit to serve as President of the United States.”

The letter from Lisa Bardack came as Clinton recovers from pneumonia. She is expected to return to the campaign trail on Thursday. On Sunday, Clinton left a 9/11 memorial ceremony early in what the campaign said was a case of overheating. Later, the campaign said that Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.

In her letter, Bardack said that Clinton was suffering from “mild non-contagious bacterial pneumonia.”

“On Sunday, September 11 at the 9/11 Memorial event, she became overheated and dehydrated and as a result felt dizzy,” Bardack wrote. “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. Mrs. Clinton has since been evaluated by me several times and continues to improve.”

The letter also describes medications that Clinton is taking, including a blood thinner and a medication for hypothyroidism. She also described a sinus and ear infection earlier this year.
