Melania Trump Was Hospitalized To Receive Kidney Surgery: The Most Serious Medical Procedure For The First Lady Since Nancy Reagan
Melania Trump underwent surgery on May 14th after experiencing kidney issues for some time. The procedure took place at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, DC.
Despite being already aware of her condition, the First Lady tended to her responsibilities on Mother's Day. The White House event celebrated mothers of military families, and Melania was there to honor them.
We had a wonderful celebration @Whitehouse today to honor some incredible military moms for #MothersDay. My heart & continued prayers stay w/ all our brave military members. I’m proud to support @POTUS in today’s signing to help increase opportunities for military families. pic.twitter.com/VCs8KsScOF— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) 9 мая 2018 г.
Next day, Trump finally found some time to take care of her health. She was admitted with a benign kidney condition, according to the statement issued from her office.
This morning, first lady Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. The procedure was successful, and there were no complications.
Luckily, the procedure went well, and the First Lady is expected to leave the hospital in about a week. Melania Trump has just launched her youth supporting campaign 'Be Best', so she must be impatient to get back to her responsibilities.
This is the most serious surgery undergone by the first lady while being in the White House. The most recent one was Nancy Reagan's mastectomy in 1987.
President Donald Trump flew out to visit his spouse in the hospital. Reportedly, he spent about an hour with Melania, after which he returned to the White House.
Trump also tweeted an update about his wife's successful procedure and was grateful for all good wishes.
Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits. Thank you to all of the well-wishers!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 14 мая 2018 г.
We hope the First Lady recovers quickly and returns to her campaigning shortly.
