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!

More Complications For Michael Lohan; Has Trouble Breathing And Speaking

This is sounding more and more serious.

In preparation for his heart surgery on Monday, Michael Lohan has been resting in a hospital. He's already had to postpone the surgery due to complications, including blood clots in his lungs.

It looks like things are deteriorating for Lindsay's dad though, as he is currently having trouble breathing and speaking.

Doctors say that he should have had the procedure done months ago, but since he's waited so long, his condition has gotten worse.

Instead of getting into trouble left and right and horning in on his daughter's life and career, he should have focused on his health!

Hang in there, buddy. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

This poor guy can't catch a break!

Bret Michaels is currently on tour, wowing his fans with how easily he was able to bounce back after suffering a major stroke. However, sources are reporting that the worst is not over yet for Bret. The rocker has a major surgery coming up right after the new year and it concerns his ticker.

When Bret was hospitalized earlier this year, his doctors found a hole in his heart, a condition that he has had since he was born, unbeknownst to him. The surgery will be to repair the hole and keep him from any further complications. His rep confirmed the news and offered reassurance that his client is a survivor. His rep explained:

"Is he 100 percent? No, but he's in good spirits, he's having fun on the road, he loves his fans and has always said music heals him. He said that there are times when, of course, he worries but he has great people around him and he's very cautious…He'll rest up, have surgery, take some time off, hopefully take a family vacation and get back on the road touring and promoting his upcoming book."

Hopefully you people will let him enjoy the first part of that before you thrust him back into working again. The man has endure some serious medical stuff. Let's give him a bit of a break, shall we?!
