Sen. McCain's Wife Stable After Stroke

Cindy McCain, wife of Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain is hospitalized after suffering a stroke. According to the Senator: "My wife, Cindy, suffered a small cerebral hemorrhage. She is currently in stable condition at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix. According to her physician the prognosis is cautiously excellent."
McCain quotes his wife's neurosurgeon, Dr. Robert Spetzler, Director of the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital, as saying Mrs. McCain's speech is mildly affected from a small bleed in her brain, but her prognosis is "cautiously optimistic."
A spike of high blood pressure could have caused the stroke, the doctor said. Mrs. McCain remains hospitalized pending the results of ongoing tests.
