Supreme Court justice Ginsburg 'up and working' after fall

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is already up and working in her hospital room, a day after breaking three ribs in a fall, her nephew said late on Thursday at the Hollywood premiere of a film about her life.

Ginsburg, a ground-breaking liberal jurist who at 85 is the oldest U.S. Supreme Court justice, was hospitalized on Thursday after falling at her office at the court, a court spokeswoman said.

“The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes,” her nephew Daniel Stiepleman said at the premiere of the film “On the Basis of Sex”, about a gender-based discrimination case Ginsburg tried as a young lawyer in 1972.

12. Nervous as hell about her.

We may need her there for (dare I even think it) 6, not just 2 more years.

13. There is no medical treatment for broken or cracked ribs

They just have to heal on their own. I'm sure she's getting meds to help her deal with the pain that she'll have for a few weeks, though.

14. You go, girl! That's amazing.

I had a co-worker crack some ribs...she was laid up for weeks. It's incredibly painful, apparently.

29. It can be, but..

When I broke three ribs, it was, like RBG, several hours before I felt I needed medical care. I think I was in bed, on pain meds for one day, then ibuprofen and back to the grind, albeit gingerly, the next. Of course, I was also only 20. It’s a bigger deal for dear Notorious. I wish her speedy healing.

30. Oh, I see. Yes, it may have to do with age, general physical condition...

and in the case of my co-worker, whether she wanted to take off work or not.

21. She's a trooper.

She is a very bright example of selfless service. I think the only reason why she isn't retiring now is to keep the court from becoming even more right wing. I think she's staying on right now for the good of the country.

22. She needs a protective bubble of some kind around her

Get Neil Degrasse Tyson or Bill Nye on the job.

I only had time for a quick, silent prayer, “Dear God, please, no...”
