US Senator John McCain, who is battling brain cancer, was in stable condition today after undergoing surgery to treat an infection, an aide said, adding that Senate colleagues have made frequent visits to see him.
McCain, 81, was diagnosed last year with an aggressive type of cancer, glioblastoma, after a brain tumor was discovered by doctors.
His wife Cindy McCain took to Twitter to say that her husband was "doing well after his surgery. Looking forward to getting back to Hidden Valley," the couple's ranch in Arizona. "Over the last few months, Senator McCain has been participating in physical therapy at his home in Cornville, Arizona, as he recovers from the side effects of cancer treatment," Tarallo said.
"He has remained engaged on his work as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and has enjoyed frequent visits from his family, friends, staff and Senate colleagues." While McCain has not been seen in Washington for some months, his daughter Meghan expressed optimism in March that her father would be back in the Senate by the summer.
The senator effectively sank Trump's attempts to scrap the health care reforms passed into law during Barack Obama's presidency by voting against a repeal soon after being diagnosed with cancer.
