Cheney Appears Frail at First Public Event Since Heart Surgery

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(BAKERSFIELD, Calif.) -- Former vice president Cheney appeared frail and noticeably thin during a public appearance this weekend at the Bakersfield Business Conference.

Cheney’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The former vice president has been on the mend since a July procedure to implant a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) into his heart. Cheney said at the time he was "entering a new phase of the [heart] disease" when he began to "experience increasing congestive heart failure."

Cheney was released from the hospital August 9.

The California event was Cheney’s second appearance this month. Last week, he spoke at a closed press event for the Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers in Colorado Springs.

Cheney’s history of heart problems includes five heart attacks, dating back to his first in 1978 when he was just 37 years old. His most recent one took place in February.
