Ginsburg Hospitalized, Released

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized last night, and released this morning. Via the AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Supreme Court officials say Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had cancer surgery earlier this year, was briefly hospitalized overnight after having a bad reaction to some medicine.

A statement from the court says Ginsburg was taken to the Washington Hospital Center Wednesday night and released Thursday morning.

Doctors say Ginsburg had an adverse reaction to a sleeping aid combined with cold medicine. She took the medicine in preparation for an overnight flight to London, but was taken off the airplane after she experienced extreme drowsiness causing her to fall from her seat.

Looks like all is well, despite what must have been a scary scene. Here's wishing Justice Ginsburg a speedy recovery.
