Nothing keeps the Notorious RBG down for long.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is “up and working” and making jokes after being hospitalized with rib fractures, her nephew said on Thursday at the premiere of a new movie about her early career fighting for women’s equality.
Daniel Stiepleman, who wrote the script for the film “On the Basis of Sex” about his aunt’s work as a young lawyer, with input from the justice herself, told Reuters the 85-year-old Ginsburg was “doing great.”
“The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes,” he said. “I can’t promise they were good jokes but they were jokes.”
Ginsburg was hospitalized in Washington after suffering three fractured ribs from a fall. Hours later, Hollywood got its first look at the new film about her pioneering work.
I swear I think I had the first panic attack of my life when I heard Justice Bader had fallen and broken some ribs.
I have cracked some ribs in my day and I know how painful they can be, and this woman is 85 years old!
But true to form she is already getting right back to work and proving once again that she is virtually unstoppable.
I do not think I have ever cared as much about the health and safety of a person on the Supreme Court as I do about this amazing woman.
Hang in there RBG we are all counting on you!
