Cheney Still Hospitalized After Heart Surgery
Fox News/AP ^ | 8-1-10

Posted on 08/01/2010 9:44:03 AM PDT by STARWISE

Former Vice President Dick Cheney is still in the hospital after heart surgery in early July.

Daughter Liz Cheney says her 69-year-old dad is out of intensive care and hopes to return home this week. She tells "Fox News Sunday" that he's already planning trips for fly fishing and hunting later this year.

Dick Cheney has had five heart attacks since he was 37. In his recent surgery at a northern Virginia hospital, Cheney had a small pump installed to help his heart work.

For some reason I thought he had gone home shortly after it was implanted. Will be watching for his recovery to see just how good this device works....I’m following in his footsteps having had 2 open heart by-pass surgeries, valve replacement, heart attack and now heart failure.
So I”m wishing him the best and God speed for a recovery that gives him many more years. Was aware this was being used for those waiting heart transplants but not too sure how long people have been living once this is implanted.

I’M WITH YOU YOU ON THAT ONE. THIS COUNTRY NEEDS DICK CHANEY AND MORE NOW THAN WE EVER DID. HE IS NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT AND TELL IT LIKE IT IS. HE HAS A DAUGHTER THAT IS IS DOING WELL AS CARRYING ON HIS LEGACY. I HOPE HE MAKES IT FOR THE SAKE OF THE COUNTRY.
SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT, IT WASN’T DICK CHANEY OR PRES.BUSH AND BIG OIL THAT WAS HURTING THIS COUNTRY, IT WAS THE CLINTONS AND THE RAT PARTY THAT WERE PLAYING OILK GAMES. THE CLLINTONS, NOT ONE BUT ALL THREE WERE MAKING DEALS. BILL RICHARDSON IS NOW GOVERNOR OF NEW MEXICO FOR HIS DIRTY WORK FOR THE CLINTONS, RICHARDSON TRAVELED AROUND THE WORLD GETTING FOREIGN COUNTRIES TO CUT BACK ON OIL PRODUCTION, SADIA ARABIA WERE THE ONLY ONES THAT REFUSED TO CUT BACK. CLINTON’S PROMISE TO BOMB IRAQ FOR OIL INVESTERS AND HIS PARTY, WHEN THE PRINCE REFUSED, CLINTON HAD ALBRIGHT SET IT UP AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THE SERBES WERE THE ENEMY, CLINTON WENT IN TO KOSOVO, USED THAT AS AS DISTRACTION FROM IRAQ. ALL THREE CLINTON MAKE MONEY WHEN SLICK WILLIE MAKES A DEAL. MANY INNOCENT SERBIAN CITIZENS LOST THEIR LIVES THANKS TO THE CLINTON INVESTER AND BROKERS. THEY BOMB THE SERBIAN OIL REFINERIES TO SATIFLY THE INVESTERS, IT WAS ENOUGH TO GET THEIR MONEY BACK BUT MANE PLENTY OFF SODDOM. THE CLINTONS,THE RAT PARTY AND THE UN MADE MILLIONS OFF SODDOM. ALBRIGHT WAS VERY MUCH A PART OF THAT MASSACURE,THE SLAUGHTER INNOCENT SERBIAN PEOPLE. ALBRIGH ONE OF THE FEW MEMTIONED THAT ATTENDED CHELSEAS WEDDING. VINCE FOSTER PLAYED A BIG ROLL IN THE BANKING INDUSTRY WITH THE CLINTONS, HE’S DEAD

After doing some research on this I just read an article about a man who had this implanted in 2008.....he spent a month in the hospital adjusting to it and now is back doing some things he had previously done. The LVAD once used for those waiting for transplants now are being designed for “destination therapy” which means long term useage.
That is encouraging ....so perhaps Cheney being in the hospital this long may be considered normal for this procedure.............

They may be keeping him in the hospital in hopes of finding a heart for him soon.

Pennsylvania Gov. Robert Casey lived for 7 years after a heart-liver transplant.

I just read this on another site. I monitor the news, FR, and other sites daily, and this is the first I knew he was still in the hospital, especially ICU. There was something in the news several weeks ago that he was in need of a heart transplant, but I had no idea he was still in the hospital. Maybe the media, including Fox, was too busy covering Chelsea's wedding??

May God bless this good man and may he go fly fishing and hunting here on earth soon.

Liz Cheney said she will host Hannity on Fox News next Friday and will devote part of the hour to progress fighting heart disease.

My husband had a heart transplant in June!!! He is doing great. An LVAD which is what VP Cheney had is an extremely invasive and difficult procedure. It was an option for my husband and the doctors were looking in that direction, however a donor heart became available. When they were explaining the LVAD to us, we were told it is more difficult than bypass or transplant and the risks are greater than either. The hospital stay and recovery is up to four weeks. If one is on a transplant list, and they have to do an LVAD, they are removed from the list. I am stunned that the media did not give more information on the LVAD pump procedure, which is cutting edge and interesting. Possibly the Cheney’s wanted to be more private about it. I suspect that they are using it as bridge to transplant and if he would get a heart, the news will not be kind to Cheney. I know that we heard every bit of news on Clinton’s bypass.
