McCain spent 2 hours in hospital yesterday
CNN | None

Posted on 06/01/2008 2:08:40 PM PDT by cajuncooker

This morning at around 7:30 a.m. on CNN it was reported that Mr. McCain spent 2 hours at a hospital yesterday. No reason given for the visit. I believe the report was that he was at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

Has anyone heard anything more about this???

There is no link on Google or Drudge as to this visit but it was seen on CNN this morning.

Didn’t see it. I was too busy watching a report that Obama had met with some aytollahs somewhere.

I heard he visited Walter Reed Hospital with no fanfare. It sounded as if he was making an unannounced visit to injured troops.

If anyone’s interested, my nephew, Army Reserve unit out of Bryan, Texas, was 1st Sgt riding in a convoy. His unit had been in country 3 days and were on their first mission. They were attacked by 6 insurgents. A young private returned fire and killed 5 of the 6 on the right side of the convoy. About that time an RPG hit the left side of the vehicle and injured the private and my nephew. My nephew had shrapnel that lodged in the brain. The private, severely injured in his right leg, performed first aid on my nephew and is credited with saving his life.

My nephew’s name is David Gussberry. The young private is David Hutchison and is getting the Bronze Star with V for his actions. It was his first time in combat. What a warrior!

An Air Force strike was called in and got the other insurgent.

My family says they’re being treated like royalty at Walter Reed and everything is paid for. Too bad the media doesn’t report that.

I haven’t posted for a long time on here but felt this was worth reporting.

Drudge only monitors AIDS related hospitalizations.

He looks out for his immediate family that way.

Thank you all for your prayers. My family is convinced it was God who protected them. My nephew had brain damage, is blind on one side but is getting better in his testing. The doctor told him it’s possible he’ll make a full recovery. He thinks the blindness is being caused by swelling.

Private Hutchison has already been transferred to Brooke in San Antonio. In the beginning he had no feeling in his leg and I don’t know how he’s doing now but I do know he’s an out patient so that’s good.

Thank you all for your prayers.

You don't have to thanks us. We owe them a debt that we'll never be able to repay.

If it's not too inconvenient, could you post here or send FReepmail when you have some updates on their conditions?

If he takes Palin for VP, she will finish out his term and become our 2nd female prez after hilary who served two terms. In the future the claim will be made that hilary deserves to be called our 1st female prez.

If he went to the Clinic, it was more than likely for a routine medical follow-up. Probably the skin cancer. It is imperative patients stay diligent in keeping this condition in check. If he went to the Hospital, who knows. The Clinic is an entirely different set of buildings on Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale. The Hospital is located on Mayo Boulevard in Phoenix.

When your nephew is feeling better and up to it tell him to look out the window on Friday night towards the the Georgia Ave and Elder St gate after 7pm. Thanks for the heads up, NonValueAdded.

Will definitely tell him to look out the window. Thanks.

All those guys are warriors. My nephew was upset that he didn’t get to shoot back. He was in Iraq a few years ago and got into some combat. But I don’t think he’ll be going back anymore.

Funny story. He said he had gone to get some ice and saw the Reno 911 guys standing at the door of his room. He approached them and said, “Hey, I know you guys.” They asked him what happened to him and he said, “Five of the little sons-a-bitches shot me.” He’s not a 100% but he’s still got this sense of humor.

He told me yesterday his wife had the camera ready for when McCain came in. I had said I wouldn’t vote for McCain as had others in the family. But after this, him going there with no press, I’ve got a new found respect for the man. He refused to use it for political gain. And even people on here are wondering why he went to the hospital. He now has my vote and my sisters’ votes. And I’m sure he has my nephew’s vote, too!

McCain is not my favorite but he deseves better because of his abilty to get out of the fetal position after what he's experienced in the military and medically. I'd probably be sucking my thumb in an institution, if I survived at all.
