McCain’s Surgery May Be More
Serious Than Thought, Experts Say

New York Times, by Denise Grady & Robert Pear

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/16/2017 7:34:38 PM

The condition for which Senator John McCain had surgery on Friday may be more serious than initial descriptions have implied, and it may delay his return to Washington by at least a week or two, medical experts said on Sunday. The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has already announced that votes on a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will not begin until Mr. McCain’s return. A statement released by Mr. McCain’s office on Saturday had suggested that he would be in Arizona recovering for just this week, but neurosurgeons interviewed said the typical recovery period could be longer.

Comments:
McCain has one true advantage. He´s not under 0bamacare. Then, at his age, the hospital would rank his surgery as "critical". I originally thought this sudden medical need was to be used to keep the Senate from voting on Trump´s "repeal and replace" bill to get votes lined up. Either way, the bill should either be to repeal 0bamacare, or let it move forward to have the dRATS own it´s eventual failure. Don´t kid ourselves. Both "solutions" will hurt US and the economy at first. Mr. McCain. I wish you two things. Successful surgery and then your immediate retirement.

No kidding.

I did not buy the innocuous-sounding desciption of "a blood clot above the eye" for a second.

By definition, a craniotomy is for an intracranial problem. Meaning the brain. Blood clots in the brain can be either intravascular or extravascular. If intravascular, then call in a thrombotic stroke, if extravascular then either it is from trauma (e.g. subdural hematoma) or an intracranial bleed.

The initial reports made it sound like he had a hangnail tended to. Nothing to see here folks.

My research at medical sites revealed that a clot like he was said to have is often caused by bleeding from a tumor. He has had melanoma. Now they are waiting to see what the biopsy of the “clot” reveals.

Here is what I found yesterday. I’d forgotten it was part of an article on Jimmy Carter’s melanoma from 2015:

From an article on Jimmy Carter in August 2015:

How is a melanoma brain tumor diagnosed?

It’s diagnosed by brain imaging studies, such as CT and MRI. MRI is a better study with higher sensitivity and specificity. Sometimes, the initial presentation is intracerebral hemorrhages, as these tumors are more likely to bleed, and neurosurgeons may find the tumor when evacuating the blood clot.

A friend, the Navy doctor who refused to sign documents to give John Kerry a Purple heart for a pinprick had a comment on the "minimally invasive" characterization of McCain´s surgery. "Minimally invasive brain surgery is done when there is minimal brain on which to operate."
I agree.

I agree with #28. McLame will never retire from the Senate. Now don´t get me wrong I hope that his surgery goes well and if it does at 80 he should just call it a day. He won´t because he loves the limelight, being called Senator and doing all he can to stifle PDJT´s agenda. This angry, narcissistic old buzzard will be like my former Senator Robert KKKKK Byrd in that he´ll be well into his 90s still mucking up Capitol Hill.

President Trump accused Iran of collaborating with North Korea to strengthen their missile technology Saturday evening in a Twitter post criticizing the 2015 nuclear agreement between the U.S., Iran and five other nations. "Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel," Trump wrote. "They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!" (Snip) Trump posted the tweet hours after Iran claimed to have successfully tested a new ballistic missile capable of reaching parts of the Middle East, including Israel.

The circus is returning to the University of California, Berkeley, as a sequel to rioting in February by black-clad protesters angered by the campus visit of conservative speaker Milo Yiannapolous. The goal of the protestors then and now is simple: demonize and silence conservatives. Shamefully, the Berkeley rioting was permitted by a hands-off attitude by university administrators. After a now-departed chancellor and his aides ordered University of California police to stand aside, rioters set fires, inflicted $100,000 in damage to university buildings, and prevented Yiannapolous from speaking.

Seoul, South Korea - North Korea has long cultivated an image of defiant belligerence, punctuating its propaganda and diplomacy with colorful threats, insults and bluffs. But Kim Jong-un’s personal statement released on Friday, and his foreign minister’s threat to test a nuclear weapon over the Pacific Ocean, represent a new level of brinkmanship by the government. (Snip) The North Korean news media carried photographs of Mr. Kim sitting in his office and reading his statement, but his voice was not broadcast. On the country’s state-run Central TV, a female announcer read his statement.

Israeli forces are reported to have carried out attacks from outside the Syrian border early on Friday, according to the Lebanese Al Mayadeen. It said the strike led to a fire, with no casualties or disruptions at Damascus International Airport reported.

Trump calls North Korea’s

President Trump on Friday labeled Kim Jong-un a “mad man,” shortly after the North Korean leader had called him a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” “Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!” Mr. Trumptweeted. Mr. Trump was apparently responding to the North Korean leader’s reaction to the president’s address to the United Nations. “Far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his

Washington - The Trump administration is preparing to dismantle key Obama-era limits on drone strikes and commando raids outside conventional battlefields, according to officials familiar with internal deliberations. The changes would lay the groundwork for possible counterterrorism missions in countries where Islamic militants are active but the United States has not previously tried to kill or capture them. (Snip) The policy paves the way for broader and more frequent operations against Al Qaeda, the Islamic State and other jihadists.

For the more than five million Puerto Ricans living on the United States mainland, it was bad enough to watch news reports on Wednesday of Hurricane Maria ripping through an island where relatives and friends lived. What made it worse was not knowing how their loved ones had fared. With the entire power grid knocked out and with more than 95 percent of wireless cell sites out of service, communication was all but impossible on Thursday, and an already emotional day became even harder for the Puerto Rican diaspora.
