Former President Bill Clinton returned to his home in upstate New York on Friday after doctors placed two stents in his coronary artery in order to open a blockage. Clinton was admitted to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan Thursday after complaining of heart pain and difficulty breathing. There was no evidence of a heart attack or of any damage to Clinton’s heart but photographs taken of Clinton’s bypass surgery in 2004 showed a blocked graft, which could have been the cause of his pain and difficulty breathing.

In a statement from his foundation, Clinton said he wanted to thank everyone who gave their best wishes, which included one from President Obama and other past presidents. “He looks forward in the days ahead to getting back to the work of his Foundation, and to Haiti relief and recovery efforts,” the statement said. –NATASHA ALLOWAY
