In a new turn of events, we’ve been led to believe that First Lady Melania Trump’s health crisis was far more critical than we ever thought. At a recent interview, President Trump announced that the First Lady was still recovering from the kidney surgery she received over three weeks prior.
Speculations began to arise about her growing absence from the public. Some accused the Trumps to have serious marital issues that caused Melania to steer clear of anyone, while others assumed there were deeper issues in her private life keeping her away.
President Trump took to Twitter to put those untrue speculations to rest. “Four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting. They never reported the sighting because it would hurt the sick narrative that she was living in a different part of the world, was really ill, or whatever. Fake News is really bad!” he tweeted.
On May 15, finally received official word that the First Lady had a kidney procedure, but we didn’t know the extent of the issue. When President Trump spoke to news reporters, he assured the world that Melania was doing great.
He then made a few comments, that led us to believe her condition was a bit more serious than we realized. “She can’t fly for one month, the doctors say. She had a big operation! It was close to a four-hour operation, and she’s doing great.”
Dr. Nancy Simpkins weighed in on the matter while meeting with Inside Edition to give her take on his explanation of her condition. “We don’t know if it was a complication of the original procedure - whether they had to actually go in for a surgical procedure - but it does seem to be more serious than originally told to us.”
She also speculated that a “benign kidney condition” should have been a much quicker turnaround, and is typically an outpatient procedure with a fairly speedy recovery. For the surgery to take nearly four hours and almost a month of recovery time, something deeper happened.
According to Dr. Simpkins, “The First Lady may have suffered complications, including severe pain, bleeding, blood clots, or an infection.”
Since the breaking of this discovery, people across the globe have continued to pray for a quick recovery for Mrs. Trump. While we have seen her finally stir about and make a few appearances, we know she is still on the mend. We hope she’s nearing the road to a full recovery!
