Dick Cheney still in hospital after heart surgery

Former State Department official Liz Cheney made some news Sunday when she told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace that her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney," remains hospitalized after undergoing heart surgery in early July. From the transcript:

WALLACE: Liz, I got to start with you. How's your dad? Is he still in the hospital?

CHENEY: He is still in the hospital, but he's doing well. He's out of the intensive care unit and hopefully will be home later this week.

WALLACE: Now, I mean, I read, as every American did, I guess, about this heart pump. In fact, will he be able to go back and have a good active life and fly fish and hunt?

CHENEY: Absolutely. He's looking at fly fishing and hunting dates for later on this year, so we're very hopeful.

Cheney, who has suffered five heart attacks, announced July 14 that he had undergone surgery the previous week to implant a pump into his heart. Little more information had been released about his treatment and status until his daughter's comment Sunday.
