McCain hospitalized for side effects of cancer treatment, bureau says

Sen. John McCain was certified Wednesday to Walter Reed Hospital for “normal side effects” of his cancer treatments, his bureau pronounced in a statement. “As ever, he stays beholden to his physicians for their glorious care, and his friends and supporters for their support and good wishes,” a matter said. 

McCain is now receiving diagnosis for glioblastoma, an assertive form of mind cancer. The 80-year-old was diagnosed in July.

“Sen. McCain looks brazen to returning to work as shortly as possible,” a matter continued.   

In an talk with Lesley Stahl for “60 Minutes” in September, McCain spoke about confronting a tough diagnosis. “They pronounced that a augury is very, really serious. Some contend 3 percent, some contend 14 percent. You know, it’s — it’s a really bad prognosis,” he said. “So we only said, ‘I understand. Now we’re going to do what we can, get a best doctors we can find and do a best we can.’ And during a same time applaud with thankfulness a life good lived.” 

Earlier Wednesday, McCain’s daughter, Meghan, a co-host of “The View,” grew weeping as she interviewed former Vice President Joe Biden, whose son Beau died from glioblastoma in 2015.

“There’s a lot of things happening,” Biden told Meghan McCain. “There’s breakthroughs occurring now … It could happen.” 

Biden recently wrote a memoir, “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose,” about his son’s Beau’s conflict with cancer and a impact on their family. Biden seemed on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday to plead his discourse and his son’s life.

“One, we wanted people to know what an implausible immature male my son was, and we also wanted people to – a lot of people have left by what I’ve left by but any of a assistance I’ve had,” Biden pronounced on a broadcast. “You know, Immanuel Kant’s phrase, there’s 3 things to happiness: something to do, someone to love, and something to demeanour brazen to. It’s all about perplexing to take what Beau – what we think, what my family thinks – would be doing were he still here and doing it. It gives we a purpose.”
