Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back in the hospital. For the love of god, universe, NOT NOW. Read the room!!!!!
CNN reports that Ginsburg is being treated at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore for a possible infection. “She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. last night after experiencing fever and chills,” spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg told reporters on Tuesday. “She underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins this afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August.”
Arberg added that Ginsburg is currently “resting comfortably” and will stay in the hospital for IV treatment over the next few days.
This is the second time in several months that RBG’s been hospitalized, and though she thankfully keeps bouncing back, my nerves—and the nation’s collective nerves—are goddamn frayed. Here’s hoping for a quick recovery, and once again, please pray to your deity or deities for all our sakes.
