Ginsburg working from hospital bed after cancer surgery

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is recovering at a hospital in New York Saturday morning after successfully undergoing lung surgery. Ginsburg left New York's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center on Tuesday and is now "recuperating at home", according to court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg.

A spokeswoman for the court, Kathy Arberg, also says that Ginsburg remained in NY at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center on Sunday.

On Friday, Ginsburg's trainer Bryant Johnson told PEOPLE that she is eager to hit the gym after cancer surgery.

Actor Jim Carrey insinuated that Ginsburg was the last stand before injustice ruled the court. Last month, she cracked three ribs in a fall at the court.

The court is slated to resume its work on January 7, 2019.

Ginsburg spoke in the room that holds the U.S. Constitution, and talked about the promise of the American dream for immigrants, which include her own family. Doctors operated and removed the growth they'd previously spotted, plus a smaller one they hadn't seen before.

The news that Ginsburg is doing better will likely come as a relief to Democrats in Washington and progressives across the USA, who worry that if anything serious happens to Ginsburg, President Donald Trump will be able to appoint a third Supreme Court justice in just one term.

On Friday, doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY performed a procedure called a pulmonary lobectomy on Ginsburg.

Why was she in hospital?

Ms Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton.
