The first lady's comments on Twitter on Wednesday were her first since she was hospitalized for an embolization on Monday. She tweeted "a sincere thank you to Walter Reed Medical Unit" and to her well-wishers. Mrs. Trump added, "I am feeling great & look forward to getting back home."

President Donald Trump visted his 48-year-old wife for the third day in a row. The 72-year-old president joked during a visit to the Capitol on Wednesday that the first lady should be the one visiting him in the hospital, not the other way around.
