Doctors: Cheney not out of the woods after heart transplant

Doctors said the next 24-hours will be critical to Dick Cheney's recovery!

The 71-year-old former Vice President had a heart transplant on Saturday.

Now there has been some contraversy.

Some argue that he is too old and received special treatment.

The cut-off age for a heart transplant used to be 55.

That's no longer the case.

Doctors said the average recipient waits three to six months for a heart.

Cheney was on the waiting list for 20 months.
