First lady Melania Trump has been noticeably absent from the public eye since she underwent a procedure to treat a benign kidney condition -and rumors have been swirling in regards to her whereabouts. Rest assured, I am here at the @WhiteHouse with my family, feeling great, and working hard on behalf of children and the American people!' she wrote.
She was last seen in person four days earlier as she and her husband welcomed home three Korean-American men who had been held by North Korea. On May 14, the White House announced that she had undergone a successful embolization procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The first lady had recently launched her initiative to teach kindness to children. And Melania Trump's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham told CNN that all the public speculation was "just more silly nonsense".
However, in the grand scope of Trump's first lady schedule, a 20-day break, while long, isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility. "Just looking at us, right there".More news: Gallery: The best photos from Daniel Ricciardo's Monaco celebration
A week after the first lady announced "Be Best", she was in the hospital.

As you may be aware, her lack of public presence sparked a lot of different speculations. A few days later, reports stated that the first lady had returned to the White House following the operation.
Plus, Trump herself has been active on Twitter - praising the hospital, thanking a Navy SEAL who received the Medal of Honor at the White House, acknowledging the victims of the deadly Santa Fe school shooting, and noting Memorial Day.
"She was hospitalised for nearly a week and is now home and recovering". And some chalked up her absence as another example of her private tendencies. But her office has dismissed these theories, saying she's back at work and has been involved in internal meetings this week.More news: U.S. To Continue Trade Actions Against China: White House
