Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized in Baltimore after experiencing chills and a fever, the Supreme Court said Saturday.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health

Ginsburg, 86, was taken there Friday after experiencing chills and fever.

She was initially brought to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., and then transferred to Johns Hopkins for further evaluation and treatment for a possible infection.

The court says she received intravenous antibiotics and fluids and that her symptoms abated.

Unfortunately, it seems that Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health is frail. The woman has had four occurrences of cancer, including two in the past year. She had lung cancer surgery in December and received radiation treatment for a tumor on her pancreas in August.

Moreover, she had a rare absence from a public session of the court in mid-November because of what the court said was a stomach bug.

Where is Ruth Bader Ginsburg now?

There is some good news, however, as Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Sunday, two days after being hospitalized.

"Justice Ginsburg has been discharged from the hospital,"

Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement.

"She is home and doing well."

People were quick to support the woman and wish her soon recovery.

"Wishing RBG a speedy recovery; we need her wisdom in the Supreme Court"

"Oh no. Please rest and recover soon. We all need you! You're the best!"

Ginsburg has been on the court since 1993, appointed by President Bill Clinton. Only Justice Clarence Thomas has served longer among the current members of the court.

All in all, we wish Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to remain on the bench as long as she can and wants to do the job.
