In pictures posted on her official Twitter account, she was seen sitting next to PresidentDonald 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.

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.
