House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) resumed her regularly scheduled meetings in Italy on Tuesday after a daylong visit to the hospital. She was even feeling well enough to tweet.
Pelosi was admitted to a hospital Monday, according to her spokesman. “After several flights yesterday in Afghanistan, and a long flight back to Italy that arrived early this morning, Leader Pelosi was not feeling well.”
Pelosi is in Italy with a congressional delegation to mark the 150th anniversary of Italian unification. According to a Pelosi press release, she traveled with Reps. John Mica (R-Fla.), Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), Leonard Boswell (D-Iowa) and Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.).
The lawmaker was released Monday night, and shortly thereafter a note appeared on her Twitter page: “Thanks to everyone for your well wishes — had a very productive trip to Afghanistan and am in Italy resuming meetings now.”
She also re-tweeted some healthcare numbers on Tuesday.
Pelosi will turn 71 on Saturday, but it’s unclear whether she’ll celebrate the occasion in sunny Italy or back home in California.
ITK wishes Pelosi a speedy recovery and a safe trip home.
