  • Trump Melania is ‘doing really well’ after kidney surgery

The White House declared the procedure "successful" but has withheld additional information about her condition, citing the first lady's right to privacy.

President Donald Trump headed to Walter Reed, in Bethesda, Maryland, on Monday afternoon to visit his wife.

"Our great First Lady is doing really well".

The first lady (48) underwent an "embolisation" procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre outside Washington on Monday morning, her office announced.

Walmart eyes Flipkart IPO in as early as four years
The veto rights for the Minority Shareholders will expire if Walmart owns 85% of the outstanding shares of Flipkart. At USD 20.8 billion valuation, the USD 3 billion fund can approximately get less than 15 per cent stake.

Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trump's condition said the most likely explanation for the procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma. "The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere". It is common to stay overnight after the procedure to treat the pain.

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!" She is expected to remain at the hospital for the rest of the week. "Thank you for such love and support!" - wrote the President.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said of the President's Tuesday trip to visit his wife, "This evening the President visited the First Lady at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center".

After all, he is the President of the United States and has a jam-packed schedule.
