The Telegraph

Contrary to popular belief he did have a heart, now Dick Cheney has a new one:

Dick Cheney, the former US Vice President, is recovering in a Virginia hospital after undergoing a heart transplant.

Kara Ahern, a spokeswoman for Cheney, issued a statement saying the former Vice President would be forever grateful to his unknown heart donor.

“Dick Cheney is recovering in the Intensive Care Unit of Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia after undergoing heart transplant surgery on Saturday, March 24, 2012.

“In 2010, Mr. Cheney had a Left Ventricular Assist Device implanted for treatment of end stage heart failure. The former Vice President has been on the cardiac transplant list for more than 20 months.

“Although the former Vice President and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift.

“Former Vice President Cheney is thankful to the teams of doctors and other medical professionals at Inova Fairfax and George Washington University Hospital for their continued outstanding care.”
