First lady Melania Trump said Wednesday she’s “feeling great” and expects to return to the White House soon after undergoing kidney surgery earlier this week. 

“A sincere thank you to Walter Reed Medical Unit @WRBethesda & to all who have send good wishes & prayers!” the first lady tweeted. 

“I am feeling great & look forward to getting back home @WhiteHouse soon,” she added.{mosads}

The first lady is recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside of Washington after she underwent an embolization procedure on Monday for a “benign kidney condition.”

Trump’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said the procedure was successful and there were no complications. She is expected to remain in the hospital for the rest of the week.

President Trump visited the first lady in the hospital late Wednesday afternoon for the third day in a row.

He has said she’s in good spirits, and praised the medical team at Walter Reed.
