George W. Bush undergoes procedure for artery blockage

(MCT) FORT WORTH, Texas — Former President George W. Bush is doing well after undergoing a procedure Tuesday morning to open blockage from an artery in his heart.

Bush, 67, went to the Cooper Clinic in Dallas on Monday for his annual physical examination and a blockage was discovered in an artery in his heart, according to a statement released by his office.

Doctors placed a stent in Bush to relieve the blockage Tuesday morning at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and said the procedure went well.

“President Bush is in high spirits, eager to return home tomorrow and resume his normal schedule on Thursday,” the statement read. “He is grateful to the skilled medical professionals who have cared for him.

“He thanks his family, friends and fellow citizens for their prayers and well wishes,” according to the statement. “And he encourages us all to get our regular check-ups.”

Son of former President George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush — a former Texas governor — served as the country’s 43rd president from 2001 to 2009.

He and former first lady Laura Bush returned to Dallas to live after leaving the White House in 2009.
