Last Friday, July 14th, John McCain went into the hospital to have a blood clot removed from above his left eye. Sadly, while McCain was under the knife, doctors discovered a brain tumor…a glioblastoma.
McCain’s PR has already released a statement saying,
“Scanning done since the procedure (a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision) shows that the tissue of concern was completely resected by imaging criteria. The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”
According the the statement McCain is recovering nicely after the surgery. His overall health is great. And he’s grateful for the outpouring love and support he has already received. Not to mention, he took a moment to thank his doctors. The statement also said,
“Senator McCain appreciates the outpouring of support he has received over the last few days. He is in good spirits as he continues to recover at home with his family in Arizona. He is grateful to the doctors and staff at Mayo Clinic for their outstanding care, and is confident that any future treatment will be effective. Further consultations with Senator McCain’s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate.”
