The truth behind Melania Trump's "major health concern"

The White House says the 48-year-old first lady had the procedure Monday morning.

First lady Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure to treat a kidney condition her office described as benign but required medical attention.

Mrs. Trump's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, released a statement Monday saying that the first lady will likely remain hospitalized for the rest of the week as she recovers.

She is the first United States first lady to undergo such a serious medical procedure while in the White House since Nancy Reagan had a mastectomy in October 1987.

This is done by placing blocking agents in a blood vessel - think gelfoarm, metallic coils or PVA granules. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits.

Earlier on Monday, Trump kept a light schedule with no public events and was planning to visit his wife.
