It comes with the GOP health care bill to repeal and replace "Obamacare" on the brink as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pushes toward a pivotal vote Tuesday prodded by an impatient and frustrated President Donald Trump.

McCain's startling decision to return suggests McConnell believes Tuesday's vote will be successful - with McCain's vote.

"We are potentially one or two days away from a vote on a bill that would reorganize one-sixth of the American economy, impacting tens of millions of American lives, and no one knows what it is", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), told the New York Times.

McCain underwent brain surgery to have a blood clot removed from above his left eye earlier in July and was diagnosed with brain cancer shortly afterwards.

By Monday, McCain's feed included articles about worldwide affairs. John McCain's declaration that he'll return to the Capitol for the roll call.

That's because McCain's arrival will also underscore the fierce partisan nature of the health care debate.

Glioblastoma is an aggressive brain cancer and is hard to treat, experts say.

Glioblastoma is one of several types of tumors known as glioma that start in the cells that form the structure of the brain. Edward Kennedy of MA and Beau Biden, the son of former vice president Joseph Biden, both died of glioblastoma.

"He outworked us all", said Balsan, who is now a floor director for Cronkite News.

McCain has said he is reviewing treatment options with his family. Even then, McCain said he planned to get back to work soon. "I have a feeling that if there's any way he can be back, he will be here - whether or not his doctors like it".
