Justice Ginsburg released from hospital after fracturing three ribs

Ginsburg 'Up And Working' From Hospital After Injury From Fall

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Released from Hospital After Breaking Ribs

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital Friday morning after breaking three ribs in a serious fall earlier this week, according to several reports. Given the sensitivity of the rib area, he said, they will likely take it easy for a while, "and then we'll pick back up just like we usually do".

Ginsburg is 85 years old, so obviously we're going to be anxious about her.

On Friday morning, before the Supreme Court announced her release from the hospital, President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House that he had good wishes for the leader of the court's liberal wing, despite harsh words between them previously. Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg says she is "doing well" and working from home. She was treated for colon cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and underwent a heart procedure in 2014. She initially went home but later checked into George Washington Hospital after some discomfort.

Despite her health issues, the justice has not missed any work and still continued to exercise regularly.

The Times also notes, "She broke two ribs in 2012, without missing work".

President Trump has already had two Supreme Court nominees approved for the highest court - Neil Gorsuch and more recently Brett Kavanaugh.
