But the Melania mystery only deepened when the White House event took place with no media access, and another day went by with no press sighting of her.
Nearly a week later, Melania's official Twitter account sent a somewhat suspicious tweet that did absolutely nothing to quell rumours that all was not well at the White House. "Thank you to the Gold Star families that joined us in celebration & remembrance", she said.
To be clear, @FLOTUS was in attendance at the event, sitting in the front row as @realDonaldTrump gave remarks.
Since her surgery, Melania has stayed out of the public eye, which fueled a variety of theories as to the real reason why she hasn't been seen.
According to CNN White House reporter Jeff Zeleny who offered his account of the remarks, Trump mimicked the media asking, rhetorically, "Where's Melania?". Late Sunday afternoon, Melania's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, told ABC reporter and producer Meridith McGraw that the first lady would also be skipping this week's G7 Summit as well as her husband's June 12th Singapore meeting with Kim Jong-un.
Her recent schedule has seen a noticeable shift from the weeks prior to the surgery, when she engaged in several high-profile events.
Her first clue that she would be a different first lady came when she made a decision to continue living at Trump Tower after her husband took office in January 2017, citing a desire to maintain stability for her son's schooling.
"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", the tweet said.
On May 7, the first lady unveiled her "Be Best" campaign, a slate of policy initiatives focused on the well-being of children.
After her medical procedure, the first lady graciously used social media on multiple occasions, even before Monday night's irrefutable evidence that she is alive and well.
While Grisham repeatedly denied claims that Melania was missing, the first lady herself took to Twitter to address the worry and speculation.
"It was a privilege to welcome Gold Star Families to the White House today to recognize our Nation's fallen heroes and their families", Mrs. Trump said in a statement released after the event.
Meanwhile, the rumour mill churns online. Grisham added that Trump and her staff have been keeping busy with meetings and planning White House events. Since when do Americans expect to know what the day to day whereabouts are of the First Lady?
"Nobody has heard from Melania over these past few weeks, and her cell phone has been switched off", said a source.
