May 17, 2018

First lady Melania Trump, who underwent kidney surgery on Monday morning, took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that says she’s “feeling great” and “looking forward to getting back home.” The former model has been hospitalized at the Walter Reed Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, since undergoing the procedure, which her spokesman said was performed “to treat a benign kidney condition” and was completed without any complications.

President Donald Trump, who remained in the White House during the surgery, tweeted late on Monday night that the first lady was in “good spirits,” adding on Tuesday morning that she was “doing really well” and was likely to leave the hospital within the next two or three days. Trump reportedly visited his wife at Walter Reed for the third consecutive day on Wednesday afternoon.
