(Newser) – White House watchers have one less thing to speculate about after first lady Melania Trump returned home Saturday from a five-day stay at Walter Reed Medical Center. The first lady is "resting comfortably and remains in high spirits," a rep said in a statement, per the New York Times. Asked about speculation over Trump's longer-than-expected stay after a kidney procedure, the rep said that "every patient is different. Mrs. Trump has a medical team that is comfortable with her care, which is all that matters. Her recovery and privacy are paramount and I will have no further comment beyond this." "Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melania is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!" tweeted President Trump, though CNN notes that he misspelled his wife's name as "Melanie" in the original tweet. Trump had no public events on his schedule on the day of his wife's return. (Read more Melania Trump stories.)
