Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been recovering from her lung cancer-related surgery. As far as we know, there are no signs of cancer left and no further treatment is required. However, she’s 85, so her recovery isn’t exactly speedy.
The latest? She’s had to cancel two of her upcoming events.
The 85-year-old justice was supposed to attend an event on January 29 at Los Angeles’ Skirball Cultural Center. A long-planned conversation between Ginsburg and the financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein was scheduled for February 6, and the 92nd Street Y said Wednesday that it was working to reschedule the event.
“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg regrets that she is unable to attend the talk with David Rubenstein at 92Y on February 6,” an email from the 92nd Street Y said. “She is curtailing travel and focusing on her work while recuperating from recent surgery.”
They’re canceling events as far our as Feb. 6th? I mean, I know it’s about three weeks away, but still. I’m not seeing any definitive date that she’s going back to work.
Things that make you go, “Hmmmmm.”
