Meghan McCain is all smiles with dad John on Arizona ranch

Meghan McCain shared a photo on Sunday, smiling wide with her father, Arizona senator John McCain, from their home state.

The two were pictured huddled close, seated side-by-side in two outdoor chairs on a patio, both grinning from ear to ear.

‘Good morning coffee from Arizona!’ the lawmaker’s daughter tweeted with the sweet image.

‘Thank you for all so much for the wonderful video messages! [heart emoji, American flag emoji, cactus emoji],’ Meghan added to the post.

That last part about video messages was in reference to a tweet she had posted on Thursday, while on her way to their family ranch to spend time with her father.

The lawmaker, age 81, was diagnosed in July with stage 4 gliobastoma, which is a very aggressive form of brain cancer, and is known to spread quickly within the brain.

This revelation came just days after he had surgery on his skull to remove a blood clot above his eye. 

The co-host of ABC’s The View had asked her followers to send clips to inspire her father, as he continues his battle with brain cancer.

‘I am going home to Arizona this weekend to see my family and putting together some snapchats/videos from supporters to show my Dad,’ she tweeted.

‘If any of you want to send a (nice!) video message, I will share it with him! Please message on Twitter or my Instagram – have a great weekend! xo.’ 

On February 1, Meghan gave an update on her dad’s medical condition while appearing as a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. 

‘He is in Sedona, Arizona, right now at our ranch doing physical therapy and he has amazing doctors and he’s doing really well,’ she said. 

‘He had a sort of rough time at Christmas,’ Meghan said.

In December, the congressman from Arizona was hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, so he could receive treatment for side effects stemming from his cancer therapy.

‘He’s made this really crazy, amazing recovery which I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at because he is so resilient in so many different ways,’ she told Colbert.

‘He’s a tough bastard.’ 

This came after her father was not present at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address in Washington, DC on January 30.

McCain has been one of the more vocal Republican sources of opposition to some of Trump’s initiatives, over the past several months, including being the only GOP member to vote against appointment of a would-be Justice Department official who he said attempted to justify enhanced interrogation techniques.

‘He’s doing well and I hope he comes back to Washington very soon,’ Meghan told Colbert.

‘Because I would like to see him go up against Trump a little more.’
