McCain Has Surgery To Remove Blood Clot, Recovering At Home

Arizona Senator John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye on Friday, July 14 at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, according to the hospital officials. Surgeons removed a 5-cm blood clot during a craniotomy.

The Mayo Clinic advises that “tissue pathology reports are pending within the next several days. The hospital reports that the senator is “resting comfortably at home and is in good condition. His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went ‘very well’ and he is in good spirits. Once the pathology information is available, further care will be discussed between doctors and the family.”

McCain’s apparent ill-health and confusion has made headlines recently.

“Senator McCain received excellent treatment at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, and appreciates the tremendous professionalism and care by its doctors and staff. He is in good spirits and recovering comfortably at home with his family. On the advice of his doctors, Senator McCain will be recovering in Arizona next week,” according to a statement released by his office.

    Is there a medical reason why he’s holding out? Waiting for pathology report? He’ll do anything for attention. He has the mental competency of a 7 year old.

    Ahhhh … an possible explanation for John’s incoherency, although hardly a promise it will change however! Time for Arizonans to do an “intervention recovery recall” and let Cindy handle the poor ole fella, he’ll always be “senator” to her.

    Well we know for sure he didn’t get the surgery avoid being included in the Medical insurance bill they are fooling around with in the House/Senate.

    Perhaps with a little brain surgery McCain will start acting like a Republican

  4. Don’t wish little Johnnie any ill will but isn’t it time that he retires and enjoys life??? Na, sorry, I forgot, he is an arrogant ass through and through. They will drag him drooling out of the Senate and the damage he will have done to the country and state of Arizona by then will be untold.

  5. Retire Senator, retire, your time has long passed! You are as irrelevant as the MSM! Funny though how you both think the same way.

    I wished there was some way he could be “declared” incompetent (aka incapable) and let the party appoint his replacement. The voters of Arizona can’t get this right. Now he is even holding up legislation. While I respect his past efforts to serve the country. It is past time the country move on without the straight talk express.

  7. Give the guy some respect! Did you serve and went through what he did to serve our country?

      Which has absolutely nothing to do with his performance as a U.S. Senator representing Arizona. Did you forget he’s a carpetbagger that married rich?

    • yes – in combat – that was decades ago – has “nothing” to do with his actions today.

  8. Yes, he needs to retire. Let a republican take over.

  9. Hmm didn’t he crash a few planes and get preferred treatment and was a song Bird. His behavior NOW is what is on the line. Why do you think he doesn’t retire. Beholden to many, including those in Middle East?
