John McCain, who has has been undergoing treatment for a brain cancer diagnosis in his home state since late previous year, is hospitalized in stable condition after undergoing surgery for an intestinal infection. McCain's office said Monday, April 16, 2018, he is in stable condition at a Phoenix hospital after intestinal surgery needed to stem an infection.
McCain, 81, was diagnosed a year ago with an aggressive type of cancer, glioblastoma, after a brain tumor was discovered by doctors.
As the statement didn't explicitly say how John was doing, The View co-host took to social media with her own note about dear 'ol dad.
Daughter Meghan McCain touted his "grit and determination" as an inspiration to her. He's been treated for the disease and has been getting physical therapy because of the side effects of that treatment, according to his office.
Just a few months prior, the McCain family revealed that John had been diagnosed with brain cancer.
McCain, 81, is in "stable condition", the statement said, after the surgery at Phoenix, Arizona's Mayo Clinic. "I had a really rough morning", she admitted, but called it a "privilege" to work on the show and said her father would be watching today.
Republican senator from Arizona is reported to be in stable condition. You know, it's - it's a very poor prognosis. "Now we're going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can.' And at the same time celebrate with gratitude a life well lived", John said.
McCain's Mayo Clinic care team declined to be interviewed about the senator's health. "Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation", the message explained.
