  • President Trump kisses first lady Melania Trump after she spoke in the Rose Garden of the White House on May 7. More

In pictures posted on her official Twitter account, she was seen sitting next to President Donald Trump at a private reception for families of United States soldiers killed in action. "Mrs. Trump had a successful embolization procedure".

At the briefing, she smiled when the president said she "went through a little rough patch, but she's doing great", but did not speak.

Such a weeks-long disappearance by a modern-day first lady is indeed rare, said Ohio University history professor Katherine Jellison, an expert on presidents' wives.

The president previously has provided details to the public about his wife's medical procedure that turned out to be incorrect.

Earlier this week, Melania Trump attended her first White House event in weeks, hosting a reception for the families of slain USA military service members, though that event was closed to the media. Mrs. Trump had a successful embolization procedure. A 4 hour operation and no flying for a month, as reported, sounds serious!

Her style remained unchanged.

The first lady's absence from public view began soon after she unveiled her initiative to teach kindness to children, sparking all sorts of theories about where she was, including that she had packed her bags and moved back to the family's Trump Tower penthouse in NY. Both vented about it on Twitter. "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!"

"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania", he tweeted this week.

Melania Trump made her first public appearance since May 10 with her husband at a hurricane preparedness briefing at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday afternoon.

Mr Trump added: "And you know what?"

Though a Gold Star Memorial event for the families of fallen soldiers at the White House was closed to press on Monday, this is when we finally saw Trump after more than 20 days of not making a single public appearance.
