Washington (CNN) – Former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter gave an update on her father's condition Thursday, days after he returned home following heart transplant surgery.
"He's doing wonderfully. He's at home. He was out of the hospital after just 10 days, which is just tremendous, and when I talked to him yesterday, he walked outside to the end of the driveway to pick up the newspapers and walked back, and it was a big milestone. So he's doing very well," Liz Cheney said after an event at the American Enterprise Institute.
