WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton’s doctor says she is recovering from her pneumonia and remains “healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States.”

The statement was part of medical information Clinton’s campaign released Wednesday after her pneumonia diagnosis last week.

The campaign says that Clinton’s physician found that the remainder of the Democratic presidential nominee’s complete physical exam was “normal” and she is in “excellent mental condition.”

Dr. Lisa Bardack adds that Clinton is “recovering well with antibiotics and rest” after she became overheated, dehydrated and felt dizzy at a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday.

Clinton’s aides say she’ll return to the campaign trail on Thursday.
