Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hospitalized for non-surgical procedure

 Supreme Court Associate Justice and four-time cancer survivor Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back in the hospital, but only for a relatively routine procedure.

The court said Ginsburg, the court's eldest justice at 87, underwent "a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure" Wednesday at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City to revise a bile duct stent inserted nearly a year ago.

The procedure was performed using endoscopy and medical imaging guidance to minimize the risk of future infection, and her doctors said such stent revisions are common.

"The justice is resting comfortably and expects to be released from the hospital by the end of the week," the court said.

Ginsburg's health is of paramount concern to Democrats because if she were forced to leave the court in the next few months, President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans would have an opportunity to replace her and expand the court's 5-4 conservative majority.............

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Endoscopy is a "a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure"? As dumb oxymorons go, that one is sub-moronic!

If by "putting her under" you mean unconscious, not necessarily. During colonoscopies patients may be conscious.

Several years ago I had an upper endoscopy.  They used twilight sedation (propofol, I think?). With twilight one is not truly fully under sedation, they just can't remember what happened.  As soon as it was over they hit me with narcan and BOOM I was awake. No recovery room needed

That's been my experience as well.  This is a bit more invasive than the Upper GI exam.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.
