US First Lady Melania Trump (pictured) is in good spirits as she recovers from surgery for a kidney condition, President Donald Trump said after visiting her at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday. Melania Trump, 48, will remain in hospital for the rest of the week, said a brief statement issued earlier by her office. The embolisation procedure, which is used to isolate a tumour, cancerous or benign, was successful and there were no complications. The statement described the kidney condition as “benign” adding that the first lady is looking forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere. Last week, the first lady announced an anti-cyber-bullying initiative called ‘Be Best’ aimed at cyber-bullying and other issues affecting children. Her popularity rating has been on the rise since her husband took office more than 15 months ago. According to a CNN/SSRS poll published a week ago, 57% of Americans have a favourable opinion of the first lady, a big jump from January when she enjoyed 47% support.
