Melania’s office released a brief statement explaining her hospitalization right after she had her surgery.
“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. Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week. The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere,” the statement said.
No further details have been released about Melania’s “benign” kidney condition, but many fear that it is more serious than the White House is saying given the fact that she is staying in the hospital all week to recover.
