Donald Trump returns to Walter Reed to visit first lady

Donald Trump returns to Walter Reed to visit first lady

"The procedure was successful and there were no complications", Grisham said.

Mrs. Trump, 48, was last seen in public on Wednesday at a White House event to honor military mothers and spouses.

President Trump visited the first lady for over an hour on Monday evening before returning to the White House through a thunder and lightning storm.

Reporting on Monday, the White House said that the First Lady had been sent to the hospital to be treated for a benign kidney condition, according to CBS News on Monday.

Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Ms Trump's condition said that the most likely explanation for the embolisation procedure is a kind of non-cancerous kidney tumour called an angiomyolipoma.

She said, however, the first lady would likely remain at Walter Reed for "the duration of the week" to recover. She's watching us right now.

Embolization is most frequently used to cut off the flow of blood to a tumor or growth. She is expected to remain at the hospital for the rest of the week. Some patients do not react well to the embolization itself and doctors may be keeping the first lady there as a precaution, he said. "Thank you for so much love and support!"

Prior to her hospitalization Monday, Trump appeared outwardly in good health this week.

The president tweeted shortly before arriving at Walter Reed outside Washington, saying it was a "successful procedure", describing his wife as being "in good spirits" and offering his thanks "to all of the well-wishers!" The president sat in the front row as she spoke.
