The Ann's Place restaurant owner in Akron, Ohio, was taken to the hospital after serving the president breakfast

Josephine "Ann" Harris, 70, met U.S. President Barack Obama, gave him a hug and served him breakfast when he stopped at her Ohio restaurant for a bite Friday morning.

But just a few hours later, Harris was taken by ambulance to Akron General Medical Center when she complained of fatigue and a tingling feeling.
