President Obama says that when Sasha was three months old, she was hospitalized with life-threatening meningitis:

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.”

The First Family had a tough road to the White House, this was just one of the bumps along that road.
