No Time for Recovery

John McCain’s Surgery will be covered and he has enough money to stay at home as long as he needs to recover. I had to come back early when I had a minor stroke in Nov. 2008 and again returning to work way before I was healed from my retina surgery in Jan. 2010 because I could not afford to stay home.
