“With intravenous antibiotics and fluids, her symptoms have abated,” the court said in the Saturday release.
The court provided no other details.
Each justice decides how much health information to disclose. Ginsburg, with her history of health scares, is actually one of the more forthcoming.
As the oldest member of the court and the leader of its liberal wing, her well-being is a matter of constant attention and speculation.
She announced Aug. 23 that she had completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy — a highly focused treatment that concentrates an intense dose of radiation on a tumor — after a malignancy was discovered on her pancreas.
It was the second treatment for cancer in nine months for Ginsburg. She had a portion of her left lung removed in December and in past decades was treated for colon and pancreatic cancer. She broke her ribs in a fall in November 2018, which resulted in the discovery of the lung cancer.
She recently missed a day of oral arguments at the court with what a spokeswoman called a stomach bug. She was on the bench Monday when the court released orders and swore in new members of the Supreme Court bar.
Ginsburg’s usual response when asked how long she will serve is that she will not retire as long as she can do the job “full steam.” Liberals hope that is through the election, because replacing her with a conservative would keep a conservative majority for generations.
President Trump already has chosen two members of the court, Justices Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh.
Ginsburg was nominated to the court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton. Only Justice Clarence Thomas, nominated by President George H.W. Bush, has served on the current court longer.
