The Trump campaign on Saturday shared new details on the former president's health, one week after a shooter opened fire at a rally in Pennsylvania and struck Trump's right ear.Why it matters: The memo from Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), Trump's former White House physician, is the most detailed update yet on the former president's injury — and emphasizes how close he was to being killed. Driving the news: Jackson, in the written memo shared by the campaign, said the bullet came "less than a quarter of an inch from entering [Trump's] head, and struck the top of his right ear.""The bullet track produced a 2 cm wide wound that extended down to the cartilaginous surface of the ear," Jackson wrote."There was initially significant bleeding, followed by marked swelling of the entire upper ear," he said. Jackson, who wrote that he's treated Trump daily since last weekend, said the swelling has "resolved" since then and that "the wound is beginning to granulate and heal properly."The big picture: The health update comes the same day Trump took the stage for his first campaign rally since the shooting, which left one attendee dead and others injured.Trump's first public event came earlier this week, though, when he delivered a lengthy speech at the Republican National Convention in Wisconsin. He wore a white dressing on his ear every night of the RNC, which many attendees imitated to show support. "Based on the highly vascular nature of the ear, there is still intermittent bleeding requiring a dressing to be in place," Jackson said Saturday. "Given the broad and blunt nature of the wound itself, no sutures were required."Zoom in: Jackson said Trump was first treated at Butler Memorial Hospital in Pennsylvania, where medical staff "provided a thorough evaluation for additional injuries that included a CT of his head.""He will have further evaluations, including a comprehensive hearing exam, as needed," Jackson wrote. "He will follow up with his primary care physician, as directed by the doctors that initially evaluated him.""In summary, former President Trump is doing well, and he is recovering as expected."Jackson said he was traveling to Michigan to be with Trump for the rally Saturday and provide medical assistance as needed.Go deeper: Pentagon watchdog finds Ronny Jackson drank on duty and harassed staff — report
