(Newser) – Melania Trump says she feels "great" after a kidney procedure and expects to return to the White House before long. Her husband is visiting her in the hospital for the third straight day. The first lady's comments on Twitter on Wednesday were her first since she was hospitalized for an embolization on Monday, the AP reports. She tweeted "a sincere thank you to Walter Reed Medical Unit" and to her well-wishers. Mrs. Trump added, "I am feeling great & look forward to getting back home." President Donald Trump is visiting his 48-year-old wife for the third day in a row.
