Trump: Melania Will Leave Hospital in 2 or 3 Days after Surgery

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that his wife Melania will be able to leave the hospital in “two or three days” after undergoing successful surgery this week to deal with a kidney problem.

“Our great First Lady is doing really well. Will be leaving hospital in 2 or 3 days. Thank you for so much love and support!” wrote Trump on Twitter.

The office of the first lady had said on Monday that it was likely that she would remain hospitalized for the rest of the week.

The first lady, who turned 48 last month, was hospitalized on Monday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, a hospital on the outskirts of Washington where presidents and first ladies have traditionally had their health evaluated.

There, she underwent a type of surgery known as an “embolization” to treat a “benign kidney condition,” a procedure that was successful and which presented no complications, according to the first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, who provided no further details on Ms. Trump’s condition or the reason for the procedure.

Melania Trump is the first wife of a US president who has had to undergo surgery since October 1987, when Nancy Reagan had a mastectomy after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

President Trump visited his wife in the hospital after the surgery on Monday afternoon.

“Melania is doing really well. She’s watching us right now,” said the president on Tuesday morning in a speech at the annual tribute to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. The ceremony was broadcast on live cable TV from a police memorial near the Capitol.

“And I want to thank the incredible doctors ... They did a fantastic job,” he added.

Since her husband took office in January 2017, Melania Trump has kept a low profile and, in her role as first lady, has been less active than predecessors Michelle Obama and Laura Bush, who pushed forward with assorted causes such as fighting childhood obesity and promoting reading, respectively.
