WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Melania Trump's hospital stay following treatment for a benign kidney condition (all times local).:

8:40 a.m.

President Donald Trump says his wife, Melania, will be released from the hospital in a few days after receiving treatment for a kidney condition the White House says is noncancerous.

Trump tweeted Tuesday that "our great First Lady is doing really well. Will be leaving hospital in 2 or 3 days. Thank you for so much love and support!"

The 48-year-old first lady had an "embolization" procedure Monday at a military hospital outside Washington. The White House said the procedure was "successful" and that there were no complications.

Mrs. Trump's spokeswoman had said the first lady was likely to remain hospitalized for "the duration of the week."

The White House has cited the first lady's privacy for not offering any additional details on her condition.

12:14 a.m.

White House officials say first lady Melania Trump is expected to remain hospitalized for the rest of the week following a "long-planned" procedure to treat a benign kidney condition.

The 48-year-old had an embolization procedure Monday morning at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. President Donald Trump visited her later Monday and tweeted that the procedure was "successful" and that his wife was in "good spirits."

The White House didn't offer any additional details on Mrs. Trump's condition, though Vice President Mike Pence described the procedure as "long-planned."

Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trump's condition tell The Associated Press the most likely explanation for the procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma, which isn't common but tends to occur in middle-aged women.
