In a live broadcast speech later at the annual Peace Officers Memorial Service on Capitol Hill, Trump said that her wife is watching the event on TV as he praised the medical staff at the military hospital where the first lady is staying. He spent over an hour at the hospital before departing, without addressing waiting reporters, via motorcade under stormy skies.
Trump tweeted Tuesday that his wife "will be leaving hospital in 2 or 3 days". She also attended a ceremony for Military Mothers and Spouses in the White House East Room on May 11.
"Our great First Lady is doing really well". The White House says Melania Trump is hospitalized after undergoing a procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. "Embolization can be used to stop bleeding, as in cases of trauma, or to starve a fibroid or tumor of its blood supply, as may be the case in the treatment performed on Mrs. Trump". "The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere". Doctors do that with an embolization, meaning a catheter is snaked into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it.
The 48-year-old first lady had an "embolization" procedure Monday at the military hospital outside Washington. Separately, a former Playboy model has revived her allegations of a 10-month affair with Trump in 2006. But both made a point of displaying affection during last week's Rose Garden event where she announced the "Be Best" initiative. Unlike Monday's inclement weather motorcade return, on Tuesday he left Walter Reed at 5:41 p.m. on Marine One to return to the White House.
