Melania Trump has been admitted to hospital. She has undergone a kidney surgery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C. on Monday, May, 14 following a health issue that required medical attention, according to a statement from her office.
The statement reads,
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.
Stephanie Grisham, president Donald Trump's wife's communications director, says, following the procedure, Melania is supposed to remain at the medical center in Bethesda, Maryland, for several days.
As per the report, Melania's husband remained at the White House during her operation.
The hospitalization comes days after the 48-year-old former model announced her new children-focused campaign Be Best.
The first lady made headlines after being accused of plagiarism as reports claimed that she pulled text and graphics for the children-focused campaign's promotional booklet from a prior promo, which was published during former president Barack Obama’s time in office.
Melania and Donald have been married since 2005 and share one son Barron, 12 together. Melania is Donald's third wife as he was previously married to Ivana Trump (1977-1992) and Marla Maples (1993-1999).
