Former VP Cheney Hospitalized


Recommended Posts

Fox News:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney was admitted to the hospital Friday after experiencing discomfort, the latest health scare for the 69-year-old Republican leader who has a long history of heart disease.

Cheney was expected to remain at George Washington University Hospital over the weekend, said spokesman Peter Long.

It was not immediately clear whether Cheney's health concern was related to his previous heart troubles. He sustained his last heart attack, deemed a mild one, in February.

Cheney was not feeling well on Friday and went to see his doctors at George Washington University. On their advice, he was admitted to the hospital for further testing.

Cheney's heart attack earlier this year was his fifth since age 37. A heart attack occurs when blood flow to the heart muscle is blocked. In that episode in February, Cheney underwent a stress test and a heart catheterization.

Long said he had no other details about Cheney's condition.

This can't be good at his age; hope he pulls through.

Daaum! I didn't realize that Cheney was only less than two years older than I am! (I'm less than 2 months from 68) I thought he was at least in his mid-late-70s. He's endured much more stress in his positions through the years than I did during my working years, which may explain the white hair and older appearance. (I still have dark hair, but the beard and mustache are gray B) )


I sincerely hope Cheney is not having a serious health problem. I like his attitude regarding how enemies (foreign and domestic) should be treated. I did NOT like him many years ago when he was SecDef and kept trying to shut down the V-22 Osprey program, which is an aircraft loved by the Marines and Air Force. I wish him well and greatly admire his wife and especially the daughter Liz who may be a figurehead for the Conservatives someday. ...OCTex
