The First Lady’s fans and the people of the US were curious to know why Melania had spent 5 days in the hospital for a routine kidney procedure which would have required half to one day’s hospital stay.

In response, Stephanie Grisham said:

“Every patient is different, The medical professionals who have been giving opinions to the media based on one statement are uninformed. Mrs. Trump has a medical team that is comfortable with her care, which is all that matters. Her recovery and privacy are paramount and I will have no further comment beyond this. Anyone else who chooses to speak with the media will only be speculating.”

Donald Trump is elated

Donald Trump expressed his happiness at having his wife back. He tweeted:

“Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melania is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!”

He was not there during the procedure due to his prior commitments but he visited his lovely wife many times post-procedure.
