WASHINGTON — Former vice president Dick Cheney was discharged from the hospital yesterday after his latest bout with heart-related trouble.
Cheney was admitted to George Washington University Hospital on Friday after reporting that he was not feeling well. He underwent testing and ultimately received medication to treat a fluid buildup related to his aggressive form of heart disease.
His office said on Sunday that the former vice president’s condition has improved considerably, and he left the hospital as expected yesterday.
Cheney, 69, has a long history of heart disease.
