Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg released from hospital after fall

It would appear as though 85-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg is officially on the mend.

After suffering a bad fall and breaking several ribs, Justice Ginsburg was released from the hospital on Friday.

The Fall

Ginsburg is the oldest sitting member on the Supreme Court.

At 85-years-old, she has had several health concerns over the years.

She has previously broken two ribs as well as suffering two separate bouts with cancer.

This time, she fell in her office on Wednesday night. She initially went home, just feeling sore.

After several hours, she became more and more uncomfortable.

Finally, Ginsburg went to the hospital to find out she had broken three ribs.

On the Mend

Doctors kept her for several days to ensure she was healing properly.

On Friday, she was finally released and sent back home.

A spokesperson for the Supreme Court, Kathy Arberg, said Friday that Ginsburg was “doing well and working from home today.”

Well Wishes

While President Donald Trump does not agree with her politics, he also does not wish her any ill will.

But due to some negative comments made by Ginsburg against Trump during the 2016 election, members of the media tried to goad the president into saying something negative about her. Trump did not bite.

Quite the contrary, actually.

Trump, while acknowledging their differences and her negative comments, wished her well and a quick recovery.

“I hope she gets better,” Trump told reporters.

Then Trump made their collective jaws drop with this: “And I hope she serves in the Supreme Court for many, many years.”
