Four days later, the White House announced that the 48-year-old Melania had successfully undergone an "embolization" procedure to treat a benign kidney condition, and that there were no complications.
Where in the world is Melania Trump?
In a tweet, she revealed how she was doing and reiterated that she was still "working hard".
However, Melania Trump has taken on more responsibilities since her husband was inaugurated, and on May 7 unveiled her initiative "Be Best" aimed at helping children with their social media presence and fighting opioid abuse, among other issues.
Melania's only public communication during this time has come via six tweets. Is she recovering from a kidney procedure or a "kidney procedure"?
Warriors vs. Cavaliers, Game 2
The days between games couldn't come at a better time for Mr. 82 Games (for the first time in the regular season in his career). That is a reference to James walking out of his Game 1 press conference while telling media members to " be better tomorrow ".
"Not that this will deter the conspiracy theorists, but I saw the First Lady walking with her aides in the West Wing yesterday afternoon", CNBC's Eamon Javers tweeted on Wednesday.
Reporters turned to look at the spot he indicated, but there was no sign of the first lady.
The White House has not released any additional information on Mrs Trump's recovery and her team chose to leave her five-day stint at the hospital following a relatively minor surgery as unexplained. She spent five days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center just outside Washington before returning to the White House two weekends ago.
In addition to the Gold Star families event, the White House is set to hold a Ramadan dinner this week.
