Dick Cheney isn't the healthiest of people out there, and we figure it's less about how he's living and more just about his physical state. We all know he's had heart surgeries before.
Interestingly enough, though, Dick has decided to write a book about it all. Not about his time in office or crazy road trips with Dubya (he already wrote a memoir), but his journey through heart treatments!
We think this is a fab idea!
Here's what he said about the book:

This week, Sarah Palin heard what no child of a political party ever wants to hear — she was "a mistake"!
During his first interview since receiving a heart transplant, former Vice President Dick Cheney expressed unmistakable regret for John McCain's decision to pick Palin as his running mate in 2008.

So, so many jokes.
But we'll keep them to ourselves considering the man's condition.
Yes, former Vice President Dick Cheney underwent heart surgery, getting a new heart after being on the heart transplant list for 20 months.
He is said to be doing well.
The Cheney family gave an update on his condition by releasing the following statement:
"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."
The 70-year-old has suffered five heart attacks since 1978.
Good to hear he's recuperating well, though.
Get some rest before you go out and enjoy that new heart of yours!

This is huge. HUGE. Wow. What a positive step in the right direction.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney, a staunch Republican, and his wife Lynne were on The View and voiced their support for gay marriage to Barbara Walters and the ladies.
Dick and his wife spoke about their gay daughter Mary and said,

WTF was she thinking?!
Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter, Mary Cheney, donated money to a Republican Senate candidate from New Hampshire who opposes gay marriage.
According to The Raw Story:
“Cheney gave $500 on April 1 to Kelly Ayotte, a Republican 2010 Senate candidate from New Hampshire, according to the election records database Newsmeat. Ayotte is seeking to fill the seat of retiring GOP Sen. Judd Gregg.”
And this isn't the first time she's done this! Mary has previously supported candidates that oppose gay marriage and same sex couples adopting children.

That's what we call flying under the radar! (Or no one giving a shiz about you anymore!)
Former Vice President Dick Cheney had heart surgery last week when he "began to experience increasing congestive heart failure."
Now that he is in recovery, Dick and his peeps released a statement about the ordeal, explaining that he had entered a "new phase" of his battle with heart disease and decided to take action. The statement reads:
"After a series of recent tests and discussions with my doctors, I decided to take advantage of one of the new technologies available and have a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) implanted. The LVAD is a small implantable pump that improves heart function and will enable me to resume an active life.
Last week I underwent surgery at Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute and had an LVAD implanted. The operation went very well and I am now recuperating. "
It must be nice to be old and have a lot of old money to be able to pay for such things. Too bad the rest of the senior citizens in America can't say that. If only someone had taken better care of them during their time in the White House…
No word yet if Dick is still in the hospital or not and no word if his best pal Georgey went to visit him.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney was hospitalized over the weekend with a heart related medical condition.
After complaining of not feeling well on Friday, his doctors at George Washington University advised him to admit himself to the hospital.
Cheney has a long history with heart disease, including five heart attacks - the last one occurring just a few months ago.
Luckily, his daughter Liz Cheney says that he is feeling better and could come home as soon as Monday after receiving medication to treat fluid buildup related to his aggressive form of heart disease.
