People want Ruth Bader Ginsburg to take their lungs.
The 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice underwent surgery to remove two cancerous nodules in her left lung on Friday morning. The malignant lumps were found when she was treated for fractured ribs in November. According to a statement from the Supreme Court, there was “no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body” after surgery.
“Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days,” the statement said.
Although Ginsburg isn’t expected to need “further treatment,” Twitter users are already offering her their own lungs because they’re so desperate for her to keep a balance in the nation’s highest court.

Does anyone know how I can get a pair of lungs to RBG?

Some people are kind of done with the whole “offer RBG your organs” trend.
Others had faith that she’ll pull through, as usual.
RBG health news is always wild because out of nowhere, they’ll just drop a press release like “Ruth Bader Ginsberg successfully warded off legions of banshees with her aura this morning. She is working from home.”

Please keep your lungs to yourself this news cycle.
UPDATE: Dec. 21, 2018, 1:20 p.m. PST Ginsburg, meanwhile, has continued her hustle: The recovering justice voted from her hospital bed against Trump’s ban on asylum seekers. According to NBC, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of a lower court’s ruling to stop enforcing the policy.
