Although human beings are very resilient, their bodies can still be affected by an array of illnesses and diseases that leave them weak and susceptible.

John McCain has always been considered to be a very strong man, both physically and mentally, but not even his will can help him. On April 15, 2018, he was rushed yet again to the hospital.

This time, the Senator had to be admitted to Mayo Clinic, in Phoenix, Arizona. The reason behind it was an emergency surgery to treat an intestinal infection, as reported by Entertainment Daily.

The announcement was made on Monday, April 16, and it was released by the 81-year-old's office. In the statement, it could be read that the infection was related to diverticulitis.

It was also revealed that McCain has been engaging in physical therapy sessions held at his home, in Cornville Arizona, as he recovers from the side effects of his cancer treatment.

According to the source, despite all the health problems that he has been dealing with in the past year, he continues to be involved with his work as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Due to his fragile state, the Senator spends most of his days at home, where he enjoys frequent visits from his family, friends, Senate colleagues and private staff.

As reported by Entertainment Daily, the day after the surgery, Meghan McCain, his daughter, took to Twitter to let her fans and followers know how her father was doing.

She claimed that he was in stable condition and that he continued to inspire her 'every day with his intense grit and determination.' Meghan also took the opportunity to thank the Mayo Clinic medical team who performed the surgery.

But Meghan wasn't the only one using social media to communicate with McCain's legion of supporters. His wife, Cindy McCain, also used Twitter to say that she was 'looking forward to getting back to Hidden Valley.'
