  • US Senator John Mc Cain is in a stable condition

John McCain is in the hospital with an intestinal infection, according to a statement from his office.

The statement issued by the senator's office said McCain underwent surgery at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix to treat an intestinal infection related to diverticulitis.

The statement also included a progress report on McCain's treatment and condition while he's been recovering in his home state.

The six-term Arizona lawmaker has not returned to Washington, D.C., since he was hospitalized for the side effects of the cancer treatment in December 2017.

McCain has had frequent visits from family, friends and Senate colleagues.

Over the last several months, McCain has been undergoing physical therapy at his home in Cornville, Arizona, after being treated for glioblastoma, a lethal form of brain cancer. While he's been away from Washington, he's continued to be involved with current events, including President Donald Trump's handling of Syria.

It's not exactly clear what his condition is like, but his office said Monday he was stable. Some say three percent, some say 14 percent. "So, I just said, 'I understand, 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". "On Friday, July 14, Sen".

McCain has undergone radiation and chemotherapy treatment while still performing his senatorial duties.

After testing the removed tissue, it was determined that McCain had a glioblastoma, a cancerous brain tumor.

McCain's Mayo Clinic care team declined to be interviewed about the senator's health. Our thoughts remain with John and his family during his brain cancer battle.
