John McCain, to extend "best wishes" and see how her husband was doing, the Associated Press reported Saturday. But he said he's "encouraged that John's going to be back in January and be good to go".

McCain was admitted to Walter Reed Hospital on Wednesday due to the "normal side effects" of his cancer treatments, ' his office said.

McCain announced he had brain cancer in July shortly before casting the deciding vote against Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

In a statement provided by Mr. McCain's office on Sunday, Dr. Mark R. Gilbert, chief of the neuro-oncology branch at the National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute, offered an upbeat assessment of the senator's health.

McCain's absence will leave Republicans with the simple majority (51 votes) needed to pass the tax reform bill under the chamber's reconciliation rules.

"Senator McCain is now receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center for normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy".

"An evaluation of his underlying cancer shows he is responding positively to ongoing treatment", Gilbert said.

McCain, who left Washington Sunday, will spend the holidays with his family.

"Thank you to everyone for their kind words", she wrote.

Sen. John McCain heads to the Senate floor ahead of votes on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., December 6, 2017.

The Senate already passed the tax bill once, but must do so again now that it has been joined with the House's version.

But for Republicans, the bar to pass the legislation isn't quite as high as initially feared. Marco Rubio of Florida and Bob Corker of Tennessee last week and should have enough votes for the GOP measure.

His daughter, Meghan McCain, timed her November 21 wedding at the family cabin in Cornville, near Sedona, so that McCain could participate and give away the bride.

"I'm happy to say that he's doing well".

'The truth is that, as anyone knows whose family has battled cancer or any significant disease, that oftentimes there are side effects to treatment that you have, ' Domenech explained when talking about McCain's ailment today.
