Awful news – simply awful. Awful for the senator and his family. Awful for the people, party, and his country.

All we hoped for, was a speedy recovery. So that at least one Republican with spine, standing, guts would face up to Trump. One respected Republican taking on Trump and try to do something about Trump’s appalling government.

Now it all boils down to the fighting spirit of one person, McCain himself. He has to take tough decisions nobody can make for him.

The rest of us can only aid with many prayers, good wishes, comfort, help – and a positive attitude.

It was bad enough the senator had to leave and go to hospital. Yet another senator badly needed to confront the present US government, temporarily removed from the scene. For we sure need people like Mr. McCain – right now.

Now all that remains to be done: just sincerely hope he will win this tough battle, recover. For himself, his family, his supporters, backers and country.
