Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized With 3 Broken Ribs

Edited to reference this earlier post: https://democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=2196904

This scares the hell out of me.

Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-hospitalized-with-fractured-ribs/2018/11/08/65c48a04-e360-11e8-8f5f-a55347f48762_story.html?utm_term=.8c364c68fcfb

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized early Thursday morning after fracturing three ribs during a fall in her office Wednesday night, the court said.

Ginsburg, 85, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital early this morning for observation and treatment.

A statement from the court said that Ginsburg returned home Wednesday night but went to the hospital early Thursday after “experiencing discomfort overnight.” She called court police to take her there before dawn.

I'm not a praying man, but if ever I could send well wishes to someone she's getting them.

1. damn it

You knwo the churches are already declaring this God's will, and that they are ready to front load a fascist, then probably find a way to get rid of sotomayor and kagan.

2. I hope she takes her time and heals properly, does all her MDs ask. I am encouraged

by the fact that she didn't feel the need for hospitalization immediately with the fall. It wasn't until later in the night that her discomfort sent her in. That's a fairly good sign we can all take hope from. Believe it or not many people can fracture ribs and not know it until much later. She must follow instruction, do her rehab and most of all avoid pneumonia.

If anybody can come through this with aplomb, it's RBG.

3. My first thought was "Oh my God, no!"

followed by fervent prayers for her healing.

My second thought was, "Who pushed her?" And I hate that the question is not without merit in the time of Trump.

6. I hope to god she's okay, healing and back at work soon.

But broken bones and falls significantly affect the lives of those seniors that have them. The risk of more substantial injury increases significantly in the year after an incident like this.
