Last Sunday, McCain, 81, was admitted to Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and underwent surgery to treat an intestinal infection related to diverticulitis, his office announced in a press release last week. He emerged from the operation in stable condition.
“@SenJohnMcCain and I are home in our beloved Hidden Valley enjoying a glorious Arizona sunset,” Cindy McCain tweeted Monday along with an attached picture of the landscape around the ranch.
The longtime Republican senator from Arizona was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a rare and aggressive brain cancer, last July after doctors discovered a tumor during surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye.
McCain returned to Congress later that month in time to strike down the narrow Senate GOP majority’s first attempt at enacting a sweeping health care overhaul proposal — an effort McCain thwarted again in September when he opposed an updated partisan bill from GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy.
McCain’s office could not immediately be reached to provide a timetable on the senator’s return to Washington.
