Dick Cheney Discharged From Hospital

(AP)
Dick Cheney has been discharged from George Washington University Medical Center following treatment for his fifth heart attack.

"Former Vice President Cheney is feeling good this morning and was discharged from GWU Hospital," his office said in a statement. "He will resume his normal schedule shortly."

Cheney was hospitalized Monday following chest pains that lab tests later revealed to have resulted from a "mild heart attack."

Vice President Joe Biden urged the 69-year-old, a frequent critic of the Obama administration, to get better soon in a Tuesday phone call.

Prior to his most recent hospitalization, Cheney has had quadruple bypass surgery and two artery-clearing angioplasties.
