Meghan McCain tweeted Wednesday that she is returning to Arizona from New York to be with her family. She thanked everyone for their prayers for her father Senator John McCain. Sen. Jeff Flake also plans to visit McCain this weekend.

Sen. McCain has been receiving treatment for brain cancer and earlier this week had surgery for an intestinal infection. Flake said he plans to visit McCain this weekend and isn’t sure what to expect.

"Since the operation, I don't know what his condition is or if he’s ready for visitors or not or if he’ll be back at the ranch or still at the hospital. I don’t know," Flake said.

Flake was already planning to attend the Sedona forum at the Enchantment Resort this weekend. He said if McCain wants to talk policy he will, but this is just a visit from a friend.
