Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is Cancer Free After Surgery, Supreme Court Says.

' Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is cancer free and on the mend after her recent surgery for the disease, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said on Friday.

“Her recovery from surgery is on track,” the spokeswoman, Kathleen Arberg, said in a statement. “Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required.”

Justice Ginsburg, 85, underwent surgery in late December to remove two nodules from her left lung. She missed this week’s arguments, and will be absent from the bench next week, too, Ms. Arberg said.

“Justice Ginsburg will continue to work from home next week and will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts of oral arguments,” Ms. Arberg said.

After next Wednesday’s arguments, the court will take its four-week midwinter break, returning to the bench on Feb. 19.'

5. 'Some', as I read, were licking their chops projecting her 'inevitable' demise.

Craftily plotting her replacement on the SC.

Justice Ginsburg, I pray "God Grant Thee Many and Blessed Years" from here forward! 💙

7. The spokesperson's statement is not exactly correct.

The article says: "indicates no evidence of remaining disease".

Lack of evidence of cancer is not the same thing as being "cancer free".

Finding no sign of cancer doesn't necessarily mean there isn't any. You cannot test 100% of a person's cells for cancer.

Best wishes to her.
