WASHINGTON -- Former Vice President Dick Cheney has been discharged from the hospital after his latest bout with heart-related trouble.

Cheney was admitted to George Washington University Hospital on Friday after reporting that he was not feeling well. He underwent testing and ultimately received medication to treat a fluid buildup related to his aggressive form of heart disease.

His office said on Sunday that the former vice president's condition has improved considerably, and he left the hospital as expected on Monday.

The 69-year-old Cheney has a long history of heart disease.
