Blood Clot Found in Vice President Dick Cheney's Leg

Doctors found a blood clot in Dick Cheney's left lower leg on Monday and have put the vice president on blood thinning medication to be taken for several months.

Cheney visited his doctor's office at George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates in the afternoon following mild calf discomfort, said spokeswoman Lea Anne McBride.

Monday's ultrasound revealed a deep venous thrombosis or DVT. The vice president was not admitted to the hospital and has since returned to the White House to resume his schedule, McBride said. "He'll maintain his regular schedule," McBride said. "He feels fine."

• Lift up Vice President Dick Cheney in prayer, asking our Lord to move to dissolve this clot. God IS able -- we simply need to ask!

• "By His stripes, we were healed." (Isaiah 53:5)
