Ruth Bader Ginsburg Fractures Three Ribs

According to the Associated Press:

Eighty-five-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fractured three ribs in a fall in her office at the court and is in the hospital, the court said Thursday.

The court’s oldest justice fell Wednesday evening, the court said. She went to George Washington University Hospital in Washington early Thursday after experiencing discomfort overnight.

She was admitted to the hospital for treatment and observation after tests showed she fractured three ribs.

I wish her a speedy recovery, and I hope this is not too painful, as rib fractures can be. Anyway, she’s indestructible. She’s had cancer twice, including two of the deadliest kinds – colon and pancreatic cancer – and has a stent in an artery.

  1. Remember, this is the person who fell asleep during a SOTU address, admitting later that she had drunk too much wine at the dinner preceeding it. I wonder if she waited a day before going to the doctor so that her blood alcohol content stabilized.
