MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a telegram to former U.S. President George W. Bush with the wishes for his soonest complete recovery after the recent heart surgery, the Kremlin press service reported on Thursday.
Last Monday, during an annual medical exam the doctors found a blocked heart artery in the 43rd U.S. president. After the medical advice of the doctors the patient agreed to place a stent, which is a tube that is placed in the artery to keep it open. On Tuesday, Bush underwent heart surgery and was discharged from hospital on the next day. The former U.S. president is feeling well and will get back to his daily working schedule soon, Bush’s spokesman Freddy Ford said then.
George W. Bush held the post of the U.S. president from 2001 to 2009. Before the presidential post he worked as the governor of Texas.
