In a recent article posted on People.com, President Obama opens up about one of his two little princesses, Sasha, and how she had to fight for her life when she was a few months old.
Even the leader of the free world has his weak spots. President Obama’s is his daughters.
When Sasha – “our little precious pea” – was just three months old, she was hospitalized with life-threatening meningitis, Obama said at an unprecedented White House Internet town-hall meeting Thursday.
“Very dangerous,” the President said, responding to a health-policy question from a nurse in the audience. “The doctors did a terrific job, but frankly it was the nurses that were there with us when she had to get a spinal tap, and all sorts of things that were just bringing me to tears.”
The result: Sasha, now 7, got better, and Obama will always appreciate RNs.
“I’m biased toward nurses,” he said. “I just like nurses.”
Obviously, we’re glad that she pulled through and that the Prez shared this touching story with everyone.
