President George W. Bush went in for his annual physical this week which led to an unexpected heart procedure this morning.
At Cooper Clinic in Dallas yesterday, President Bush's doctors discovered a blocked artery in his heart.
This morning, they put in a stent to open the blockage during surgery at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Doctors say the operation went as planned and the President was in good spirits, eager to return home tomorrow.
President Bush also encourages all americans to get regular check-ups.
