    Cheney has blood clot in leg, not hospitalized

    Mar 5, 2007 — WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Doctors found a blood clot in Vice President Dick Cheney's left leg on Monday but he was not admitted to a hospital and will be treated with blood thinning medication, his office said.
    Cheney, who has a history of heart troubles, went to his doctor's office after he "experienced mild calf discomfort," his office said in a statement.
    "An ultrasound revealed a deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or 'blood clot' in his left lower leg," it said. "His doctors will treat him with blood thinning medication for several months. The vice president has returned to the White House to resume his schedule."

    My comment:
    In the past this could have been a major deal now they have amazing meds that can handle this discomfort.

    You are correct. I've even read of ultrasonic treatments, that blast the clot apart.

    With Cheney's health history, I would hope he takes this seriously.

    We should all pray and wish him the best. He has been dealing with heart related issues for a long time.

    They are definitely nothing to play with. As someone who suffered debiltating illness and injury from deep vein thrombosis I would not wish this problem on my worst enemy. He is in my prayers. :praying:
