Saturday morning, Melania was reported to have been released from the hospital. Her husband, US President Donald Trump paid her a visit on the day of her embolization procedure but wasn’t reported to have come back throughout the week. The office of the First Lady announced that she is home and is trying to recover. They even said that they have received a lot of calls from the first lady’s supporters who were wishing her a speedy recovery.
The president even posted a tweet on his official Twitter account that caught the attention of the public to the point that it went viral. The president accidentally misspelled his wife’s name that he typed Melanie instead of Melania but later on deleted it. On the post, he mentioned how it was a great news that the First Lady is now back into the White House and is, in fact, doing extremely well.
Trump visited Melania while getting treated at the hospital for a week
Before the First Lady was admitted to the hospital, she actually just recently launched the “Be Best” campaign which is one of the very first ones she actually did since her husband took a sit at the office last year. This campaign aims to be able to help children fight against bullying.
This initiative was also said to be more focusing on cyberbullying since children are more active in the digital world nowadays and she wants to be able to help encourage children to have respect towards others and show kindness to anyone regardless of who they are and what they look like. Social media platforms make it so easy for youngsters to voice out their thoughts and feelings but there are times that it is already getting way out of hand that it affects others mentally.
Benign Kidney Condition
Most people are wondering as to why exactly did the First Lady have to stay in the hospital for like a week even if it is not something that other patients would be required to do on that same procedure. Some medical experts said that embolization procedure is usually an outpatient procedure and there would be no need for a patient to stay that long.
If there are complications then yes they could, however, White House said that it was a success. According to Dr. Eleanor Lederer, who was once the president of the American Society of Nephrology, a patient simply needs to go in and then would be asked to lie in bed, get the procedure done and will then be sent home. Other medical experts also believe that it may actually be more than just an embolization procedure since she stayed longer as if she got a surgery.
However, her spokesperson explained that every person is different and that those medical professionals who have their own opinions on that matter simply had no idea what the about the First Lady’s condition. They trust her medical team and they were only trying to make sure that Melania would be in the best condition.
