First lady Melania Trump had emergency kidney surgery Monday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and she broke her silence with a Wednesday tweet.

The surgery on a benign embolism in the first lady’s kidney was successful. President Trump has since visited Melania twice in the hospital.

The office of the first lady said in a statement that “Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week.” The First Lady tweeted for the first time since her hospitalization.
