WASHINGTON — Former US vice president Dick Cheney is recovering from a "mild heart attack," his latest bout in a long battle against heart disease.

Cheney was feeling fine on Tuesday and probably will be sent home from a Washington hospital within a day or two, aides aid. He experienced chest pain on Monday, and lab results revealed evidence of the heart attack, spokesman Peter Long said.

"The whole family has been working with heart disease for decades, and they are vigilant and attuned to treatment," said political consultant Mary Matalin, a friend and former counselor to Cheney.

She added that Cheney, now 69, "knows how to live with this disease" and is fortunate to have great doctors.
