Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized for a gallbladder condition, but she’s doing well

Beloved Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized for a gallbladder condition earlier this week — in case you’re wondering what that sound is, it’s a collective national panic rising during a time of extreme collective national panic. Thankfully, RBG is doing well and did not require surgery. She’s also expected to participate in oral arguments virtually later today, because it’s RBG we’re talking about here.

According to the court’s office of public information, RBG is convalescing at Johns Hopkins Hospital. She was treated without surgery for acute cholecystitis — a “benign gallbladder condition,” according to the office.
