Ruth Bader Ginsburg is on the mend after falling and fracturing three ribs.

According to Ginsburg's nephew Daniel Stiepleman, Ginsburg is "up and working" and "cracking jokes" from her hospital bed just hours after she was admitted to George Washington University Hospital Thursday morning with three fractured ribs.

Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said the 85-year-old justice is "doing well" and working from home.

"I will literally give 3 ribs to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg if she needs them, along with whichever other body parts she requires until 2020", said activist and WaPo contributor Holly Figueroa O'Reilly.

Bader Ginsburg has been closely watched by those on both sides of the political spectrum as she is now the leader of the Supreme Court's liberal wing. She also had two bouts with cancer and had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery in 2014. She said something very inappropriate during the campaign but she apologized for it. Before the offers had subsided, Ginsburg was already back home, her strength no doubt bolstered by her faithful workouts with Johnson. "For the court, it could be - I don't even want to contemplate that". But I wish her well. She also called Trump a "faker", and he called for her to resign. "I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many, many years".

She was appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993 and has been a steady liberal voice on the court.
