I don’t want to be too hopeful, but we could be hearing some very good news soon, if this goes the way I want it to go. Fingers crossed. Via CNN:

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas missed a third day of oral arguments on Wednesday after being hospitalized six days ago to receive treatment for what a court spokesperson described as an infection. Thomas entered Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, DC, Friday after experiencing flu-like symptoms. He has been absent from the bench all week.

The court announced Thomas’ hospitalization on Sunday and has declined repeated requests for updates on his health since then. When asked Wednesday about his status, Patricia McCabe, the court’s public information officer, said: “No update.”

In a statement on Sunday, McCabe said, “He underwent tests, was diagnosed with an infection and is being treated with intravenous antibiotics.”
