Inside Source Says McCain Blood Clot Much Worse Than Let On

OThe Better Care Act as it’s now called has stalled in congress as an emergency surgery on a blood Clot close to Senitor John McCain’s brain led to emergency action being taken to save his life a hospital nurse tells Star Media.

The abrupt announcement came a day after surgeons at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix removed a blood clot above McCain’s left eye.

The Clot if not immediately treated could of gone to his brain and killed the Arizona Senator.

He is now recovering at home.

Hos republican vote was important to passing the Better Health Care Act also known as Trump Care.

mitch McConnell said while the vote is postponed, a problem for the Trump Administration, work would continue across the isle to find a way to make the bill better before going back for another vote.

The statement from Mr. McCain’s office said a two-inch blood clot was removed from “above his left eye” during a “minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision” at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, “following a routine annual physical.” Surgeons there are not conducting interviews. Mr. McCain’s communications director, Julie Tarallo, said further information would be made public when it became available.

A craniotomy is an opening of the skull, and an eyebrow incision would be used to reach a clot in or near the left frontal lobes of the brain, neurosurgeons who were not involved in Mr. McCain’s care said.
