WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Vice President Dick Cheney is still in the hospital after heart surgery in early July.

Daughter Liz Cheney said her 69-year-old dad is out of intensive care and hopes to return home this week. She told “Fox News Sunday” that he’s already planning trips for fly fishing and hunting later this year.

Mr. Cheney has had five heart attacks since he was 37. In his recent surgery at a Northern Virginia hospital, Mr. Cheney had a small pump installed to help his heart work.

After the operation, Mr. Cheney said in a statement that he was entering a new phase of treatment for what he called “increasing congestive heart failure.”
