Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who underwent lung cancer surgery on
Friday, was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday (holly jolly) and is now at
home recuperating, a court spokesperson confirmed. The surgery was to remove two
cancerous nodules from Ginsburgs left lung. Doctors said over the weekend that
there is no evidence of any remaining disease.
The nodules were discovered after Ginsburg fell in her office last month and
fractured three ribs. This will be the 85-year-old justices third time beating
back cancer, after surviving both colon and pancreatic cancer.
As many have pointed out, the fact that our democratic system and the fate of
millions of Americans depend on the health of an 85-year-old woman is a bit
fucked. But for now, were just happy Ginsburg is home and recovering.
