Vice President Cheney has had a Left Ventricular Assist Device implanted. It is a stop gap measure to a heart transplant. I can already hear the leftist jokes and crowing. I wish Cheney and his family well. These devices and transplants have many risks, so these are somewhat desperate times. Cheney is still a relatively young man. I hope a donor heart can be found fairly quickly. The implantation of the LVAD means Cheney's heart is in very bad shape. I pray for Dick Cheney for a speedy recovery.
