MELANIA UPDATE: President Trump Says First Lady 'Doing Really Well'

Will be leaving hospital in two or three days.

Melania has been admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a "benign" kidney condition.

The statement vaguely described the procedure as "an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition" but offered no additional details about the first lady's condition or treatment.

"The procedure was successful and there were no complications", Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director, said in a statement.

The president visited her on Monday evening and tweeted that the procedure was "successful" and that his wife was in "good spirits".

President Trump made an unscheduled visit to check on First Lady Melania Trump in the hospital Tuesday afternoon. She also attended a ceremony for Military Mothers and Spouses in the White House East Room on May 11.

"I want to start by saying that Melania is in the hospital doing really well", Trump said during the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service. Trump also joked that his 48-year-old wife should be the one visiting him in the hospital and not the other way around, a senator said. Doctors do that with an embolisation - snaking a catheter into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it. Separately, a former Playboy model has revived her allegations of a 10-month affair with Trump in 2006.

Mrs. Trump has, at times, has been noticeably absent from her husband's side.
