Former Vice President Dick Cheney Fighting Heart Failure
By Jon E. Easter
Former Vice President Dick Cheney, 69, announced yesterday that he's fighting Congestive Heart Failure and underwent a medical procedure to help his heart continue to pump.
As someone who lost his 69-year-old father to pneumonia which was ultimately helped by congestive heart failure, I can feel what the Cheney family is going through right now. It's important to remember that while we may disagree with Dick Cheney and his actions in office as Vice President that he is a husband, a father, and a grandfather.
My thoughts are with the Cheney family, and I wish the former Vice President the best as he deals with these very serious health issues. Get well soon Mr. Cheney! I want to be hurling political barbs your way for years to come.
