      John....Pretty good summary of HC's repeated issues. She's had numerous coughing spells that were uncontrollable and nearly caused her to pass out or nearly vomit. And although I cannot recall dates and places (unless I did a search right this minute) there were at least 2 more incidents of her having dizzy spells or near falls that she was saved from by Secret Service.

      Thanks for your list.
