First lady Melania Trump out of public view for 15 days — and counting

No comments
First lady Melania Trump, who spent five nights in the hospital following a kidney procedure, has been out of public view for 15 days running — an unusually long absence, even for a first lady who relishes life outside the spotlight.
The first lady was last seen on May 10 standing alongside her husband at Andrews Air Force Base as the couple greeted three Americans who had been released from prison in North Korea. The next day, the White House announced that she had undergone an successful embolization procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to treat a benign kidney condition. 
Although medical experts have said the kind of procedure Melania Trump had typically requires only a night’s hospitalization, White House and East Wing aides have said nothing more about the first lady’s condition and instead asked for privacy.
This week her office did not say when she planned to resume public events, but says she has been holding meetings with her staff. “We’ve had several internal staff meetings in the past week around a variety of topics, including her initiatives,” Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokesperson said in an email.
Still there is an air of mystery. Friday morning, a reporter shouted a question to the president about his wife’s whereabouts as he prepared to board Marine One to attend the U.S. Naval Academy commencement.
According to a pool report, Donald Trump responded by pointing to a window in the White House residence, and said: “She’s doing great. She’s looking at us right there.”
