PHOENIX (AP) - Sen. John McCain’s office says the Arizona Republican continues to recover following recent surgery to remove a blot clot.

A brief statement released Wednesday by McCain spokeswoman Julie Tarallo describes the 80-year-old as being “in good spirts and recovering comfortably at home with this family.”

Tarollo says additional information will be released as it becomes available.

McCain is a six-term senator.

His office announced Saturday that McCain had surgery Friday to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. Pathology reports on the clot were expected in several days.

The said McCain’s doctors had advised him to stay in Arizona this week to recover.

The doctors described the surgery as a “minimally invasive” procedure that removed the nearly 2-inch (5-centimeter) clot.
