Justice Stephen Breyer provided the first public update on Clarence Thomas’ condition yesterday.
He said Thomas was “doing fine.”
We learned earlier today that Thomas has been discharged from the hospital.

ABC News reported:
Justice Clarence Thomas was discharged from Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington on Friday, one week after being admitted for treatment of an infection, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said.
The New York Post added:
The court’s statement did not describe what type of infection Thomas was suffering from, but did note that it was not related to COVID-19. Thomas was treated with intravenous antibiotics at the hospital.
He was absent from the bench all week as the Supreme Court heard several cases and issued opinions in two. In one case, the court ruled in favor of a Texas death row inmate who sought to have his pastor “pray over” him during his execution. Thomas was the lone dissenter in that case.
Thomas planned to take part in cases despite being unable to attend oral arguments, the court said earlier this week.
